A police Explosive Ordinance Team officer had to be called to an ATM at Mudgeeraba this morning after an alarm was set off by a device.
Officers were called to the shopping centre on Swan Lane around 12:45am and found smoke coming from the ATM.
An unexploded device was also found at the scene, forcing a specialist officer from the Explosive Ordinance Responce Team to be called out.
The scene was eventually made safe.
Investigations are continuing.
