Osceola County, Iowa — An Osceola County Sheriff’s Deputy, while on routine patrol Wednesday night, came across something sitting in the middle of the road that looked like something from an X-Files episode.
Osceola County Sheriff Doug Weber tells us what happened.
Weber says the device had been launched from St. Peter, Minnesota, and traveled further than expected.
Weber says the professor for the class that launched the device says they tracked it through GPS on their computer.
Sheriff Weber says a student from the university came to the Sheriff’s Office Thursday morning to retrieve the device, and take it back home.
