Texarkana, Texas A man mowing his lawn at his house on Magnolia Street noticed something unusual sticking out of the ground. After digging around the item to get a better view, he noticed it was ordnance. The man called the local police department to report the find.
The police responded with technical support from the Barksdale AFB EOD unit. EOD safely relocated the UXO to a large field behind a nearby community park where safely detonated in a controlled disposal operation.
Police are unsure of how the ordnance ended up in the yard of a home in a residential neighborhood or how long it had been there.
