Those aren’t tulips in that garden


Here’s some good advice from the Michigan State Police: if you find what looks like a military explosive in your garden, do not dig it up and take it to the police.

That’s what happened in Redford Township near Detroit today.

The person who dug up what looked like an old artillery shell took it into the local police station.

Officers there quickly recognized it for what it was and called the Michigan State Police Bomb Squad.

They tweeted what they found.

If you should ever find something that looks like an old artillery shell, grenade or other similar device, call police or fire.
