The woman raised the alarm after making the discovery close to the Teebane roundabout on the Drum Road, at about 8am.
Army bomb experts have now said it was an elaborate hoax.
A PSNI spokeswoman said one controlled explosion was carried out before one item was removed for further forensic examination.
Considerable disruption was caused by the day-long alert, given that the Drum Road is on the main route between Cookstown and Omagh.
Ulster Unionist MLA for Mid-Ulster Sandra Overend said : "There is no place in society for this type of action and everyone across Northern Ireland should work to ensure that this never becomes acceptable.
"Those responsible must be stopped, and the PSNI and our security forces should be given all the resources they require to thwart them."
Local SDLP councillor Tony Quinn branded the whole episode "an outrage".
"It is the bank holiday weekend," he said.
"Locals have been disrupted, people who have been travelling and enjoying their bank holiday weekend are being totally disrupted and this is complete and utter nonsense and it is totally unacceptable."
The security alert ended on Monday evening. The Drum Road has reopened.
