A suspicious device found taped to a vehicle at a Goodyear shopping center Sunday afternoon was a clothing sensor, police said.
The device was ringing and beeping and wrapped in a cellophane-type material, according to Goodyear police Public Information Officer Lisa Kurtis.
The discovery was made at 13277 W. McDowell Rd. between Lowes and the Brass Armadillo.
The Glendale Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team was called out to assist.
Police said the sensor was intentionally glued to the side of the vehicle, likely as a prank.
