FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Itawamba County sheriff's department is investigating a mysterious object wrapped around a high-tension power line.

Investigators say the parachute is attached to a box that is tangled around the lines owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority.

TVA workers removed the object from the power line.

Officials say it was a weather collection device launched for Little Rock, Arkansas.
