SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A Hillcrest homeowner is breathing a sigh of relief after a military ordnance was safely removed from his backyard on Dove Street.
Crews, from MCAS Miramar, were called to the scene Sunday and once they determined it was a practice rocket warhead, it was safely removed.
Experts said these discoveries are fairly common in San Diego, especially after it rains. Two ordnances were found the first weekend of December. One device was found Saturday, December 3 in a Point Loma neighborhood.
Then, a man discovered a live, World War II-era mortar round and transported it to a Linda Vista fire station Sunday, December 4, a move the San Diego Fire bomb Squad does not recommend.
"The best thing for the public, if you get something like that don’t drive it anywhere, don’t move it," said Commander John Wood with the San Diego Fire Bomb Squad. "Just call us we’ll come out. It's no big deal. We'll take care of it and get it out of there."
