Pool Excavation Yields Civil War-Era Ordnance

Miami, Florida An evacuation for a pool on a residential property was temporary halted after a homeowner discovered ordnance while digging. According to Lt. David Golt of the Miami Shores Police Department, "The bomb squad contacted the military who responded and indicated that it is a very old, possible Civil War-era device."

He went on to say, "The military has removed the device. It is unknown at this time if it would still be active. The scene is being re-opened." The rusty munition was deemed safe and people were allowed back into the neighborhood.
