Employees at the Sugarhouse Barbeque noticed a very large pressure cooker with the cord wrapped up near one of the pillars of the business on the east side. No employees placed it outside and they didn’t know who it belonged to. The HDU responded and disrupted the device.  The pressure cooker did not contain any explosive charges.
