A Monterey County bomb squad was dispatched to Pebble Beach Golf Links Sunday morning where an apparent explosive device was found near the golf course, according to the sheriff's office.

At around 8:30 a.m., a beachcomber reported spotting a suspicious device that looked like two pipe bombs taped together at the base of a 40-foot cliff near the 9th hole at Pebble Beach, according to the sheriff's office.

The Monterey County sheriff's bomb squad went to the scene, examined the device, and rendered it safe.

The incident remains under investigation.
