    Police are investigated a suspicious device at Qualcomm Stadium after someone spotted it in the west parking lot.

    The item looked like a blue ice chest with several wires sticking out the sides, officers said. A passerby noticed the ice chest and flagged down police -- turns out it was a mosquito trap.

    The ice chest was found about 100 yards east of the fire department located in the stadium parking lot, next to a cement barrier.

    The fire department's Metro Arson Strike Team was on scene to investigate the device.

    This is the second suspicious device to be investigated Friday. The team was called out earlier in the morning to the airport to investigate an abandoned suitcase, which turned out to be full of clothes.
