JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. (CBS) – In Missouri, one woman found quite the unusual object that you probably don’t want to find sticking out of your yard.
It happened over the weekend — and when she took a closer look — she discovered it was an old mortar from World War II.
Officials say the bomb was not a dud and authorities were able to remove the device and detonate it at a safe location.
It’s still unknown how the device got in the yard.
