HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Police, fire, and Hazmat crews responded to the Whole Foods parking lot in Short Pump Friday evening after a report of a "suspicious device" inside a vehicle.

Police said they received a call from someone who said they spotted what they believed to be a bomb inside a red Mercedes station wagon in the store parking lot, located at 11173 West Broad Street.

Investigators tell CBS 6 the suspicious device looks like a bomb to the average person.

Police said they have located the owner of the vehicle and she is being cooperative with their investigation.
