The alarm was raised at 5.40pm when a suspect object was found at the rear of a house on Welsh Street.
Homes were evacuated for a time - but the object was declared an elaborate hoax later that night.
Police want to hear from anyone who noticed suspicious activity in the area at any time prior to the alert.
