SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A device that appeared to have been old military ordnance was found in Tierrasanta, which prompted authorities to evacuate a building and call in a disposal unit, police said Thursday.
A Lincoln Property Management employee found the device while doing maintenance work about 1:40 p.m. Wednesday, brought it back to the management office at 10323 Orleck Street and called police, San Diego police Officer Dan Lasher said.
Officers arrived and evacuated the building, Lasher said. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit arrived and removed the device, he said.
