LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A man called the Laurel County Sheriff's Office after finding a suspicious box on his property Friday afternoon.

Deputies, emergency management officials, radiation health officials responded to a home on Chapel Road.

The box was faded green and had a label that says "Danger" and "Radioactive Material" on it.

Officials identified it as a portable industrial radiographer - in other words, an x-ray machine. They safely removed it and said the public was not in any danger.
