San Diego Police and firefighters on Friday destroyed a suspected pipe bomb left on trolley tracks near the 12th and Imperial Avenue station.
Officers said a transient took an object that looked like a pipe bomb out of a trash can and dumped it by the trolley tracks.
The Green Line was shut down at 4:30 p.m., and the San Diego Fire-Rescue bomb squad was called to destroy the object.
Officials said it turned out to be an empty pipe. Trolley service resumed at 5:34 pm.
