Santa Clara police are still investigating a couple of suspicious devices discovered near a playground Saturday morning.

Some parents taking their kids to T-ball practice at Machado Park noticed two objects lying on the ground near a tree. They say about 50 kids were playing nearby.

One parent described the objects as two painted cement heads; one attached to a shotgun shell and the other a large firecracker with nails sticking out of it.

Officers checked out the devices. They did not evacuate the area but they did close the park for a short time to detonate the devices.
