Family War Souvenir Turns Out To Be Live

Lexington County, South Carolina Deputies on the Lexington County Sheriff's Department Bomb Disposal team were called to a residential property after the resident requested assistance with an ordnance item. The resident told authorities that the round, identified as a WWII era 40mm anti-aircraft round was a souvenir that had been in the family for decades. However, recently a friend of the family thought the round was live and encouraged the owner to call the police.

As it turns out, the bomb disposal team did find that the item was indeed live. The item was safely removed from the house for proper disposal.
