ELYRIA — The safe turned out to be safe.

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office’s bomb squad was called out around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday to the parking lot of Arlington Square Apartments at 150 David Drive near Giant Eagle about a safe spotted in the parking lot, according to a report by Elyria police Officer John Matula. Julie Platthy, the apartment complex property manager, called when she saw the safe and was unsure how it got there.
