WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A suspicious-looking object was found at the Wentzville General Motors plant Monday morning.

The St. Charles County Police Special Operations Unit and Wentzville police were called to the plant around 8 a.m. after the suspicious item was found in the basement.

According to Darin Copeland, the plant communications manager, the device was “suspicious in appearance, but not explosive.” The item was later disclosed to be a PVC pipe with wires taped to it.

Last week, police told News 4 they were investigating after threats were found on the bathroom walls of the plant.
