A scary situation turned into a strange one when a bomb squad determined that a suspicious package left outside the Washington County Sheriff's Office contained a prosthetic leg.

Sheriff's Sgt. Vance Stimler said deputies called the Portland bomb squad out to Hillsboro Sunday afternoon after noticing a canvas bag with a cylinder-shaped object sticking out.

With the help of a robot, the bomb squad quickly discovered the object was not an explosive.

Stimler said deputies still don't know whose leg was inside the bag, or why it was placed in front of the sheriff's office.
