The individual, who has not been publicly identified, entered the San Bernardino police station with the remains in hand on Thursday, according to a bulletin from the department.

After approaching the public counter, the man put down the items and left. "It was unclear at the time if the remains were real," police said.

One of the bones was later confirmed to be a human jaw, they added in the department's Feb. 2 bulletin.
