The New Jersey State Park Police have a lot of questions after a strange device was found in Wharton State Forest. While they were able to determine the device's intention, they've had trouble understanding why, or how it works.

NJ State Park Police say they were called about a “UFO Detector Site," they went to investigate the strange device that was left near the road in the woods.

"After examination by members of the NJSPP Detective Unit and NJSPP K-9 Unit, our Explosive Detecting K-9 “Prime” was deployed. Prime determined the UFO Detecting Device was safe," the department shared in a Facebook post.

It was then that they were able to safely disarm the device, which they explained in the post as well.

"The device was carefully "disarmed" by NJ State Park Police personnel by unplugging the headphone wire from the block of wood and the soup can it was plugged into," the post reads.

New Jersey State Park Police say that while they can appreciate such a device, a state park is not the place for it.

"Although human kind and the visitors to New Jersey’s State Parks appreciate an extra-terrestrial early warning device like this, we should not be finding them in our State Parks," they say in their Facebook post. 'Please always be safe when around suspicious objects like this and always notify the NJ State Park Police (1-877-WARN-DEP) if a suspicious object is found in our State Parks."

Now we know who to blame when we don't know the aliens are coming.
