SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The San Francisco Police Department bomb squad responded to an Outer Richmond home where a person cleaning out the residence of their recently deceased relative found a suspicious device Saturday morning, a police spokeswoman said.

The device was reported at a home in the 500 block of 40th Avenue between Anza Street and Geary Boulevard shortly before 9:40 a.m., San Francisco police spokeswoman Danielle Newman said.
