The Square One Mall in Saugus, Massachusetts was evacuated on June 3 after suspicious device was found in a parking garage at the mall.

"It appears to probably be a 2.5-quart pressure cooker, stainless steel in nature," said Lt. Ronald Giorgetti of the Saugus police department.

Pressure cookers were used in the Boston Marathon bombs, which killed three people and injured more than 260.

Police said the pressure cooker found in Saugus was not in a box or a bag.

"It was left, just the cooker, it was left adjacent to a parked motor vehicle, in plain sight within the mall parking," said Giorgetti.
