Deputies: Pipe was not threat

An investigation into a suspicious pipe on a North Main Street sidewalk in Sherburne determined the pipe was empty and not a threat, Chenango County deputies said.

Deputies and Sherburne police investigated the report of suspicious pipe on a sidewalk in front of a commercial and residential building at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday. People were evacuated from the area, which was cordoned off, deputies said in a media release.

The Endicott Police Department Bomb Squad responded to the scene and assisted in determining that the pipe was not a threat.

The Sherburne Fire Department also assisted, and North Main Street was reopened and residents were allowed to return at about 12:15 a.m. Friday.
