Torrance, California You've heard the expression, "No Dogs Allowed," but how about "No Ordnance Allowed"?
A section of the street and some businesses were evacuated and a bomb squad brought to the scene of a hunting/fishing store after a customer brought in a suspicious military ordnance.
Police were notified to handle the unidentified device which neither the customer nor store employees were able to deem live or inert. Bomb squad personnel determined that the ordnance did not pose an immediate threat and removed it offsite for further evaluation.
There were no details on how the man came to possess the ordnance, described as no larger than a soda can. Reportedly, he brought it into the store, because he was trying to get rid of the potential dangerous device.
