Bomb squad investigates ordnance found at Sycamore Landfill

Posted: Updated:

SANTEE (CBS 8) - A bomb squad Tuesday investigated the discovery of a piece of ordnance at a Sycamore Canyon construction site.

The device, a 75 mm tank round, was lodged inside a rock-crushing machine, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Maurice Luque.

An investigation of the ordnance revealed it was a training round with no explosives inside.

The military sweeps the areas before the gravel companies take over, but this one was missed.
