Garfield Street was shut down this afternoon after officials say a dumpster diver mistook a movie prop for a "suspicious device." Alton Trahan with the Lafayette Fire Department says crews responded around 12:30. According to Trahan, a man digging through trash phoned in the report of the mysterious item. Crews later discovered the item was, in fact, not hazardous.
