Bomb Scare in Columbia
Columbia police blocked both ends of the street while the hazardous materials team removed the explosive.
"We want to encourage people that, if they do find old ordnance as they're cleaning up or anything explosives-related, go ahead and give us a call and we'll take care of it," said Capt. James Weaver.
The device is now in transit to Fort Leonard Wood where it will be examined and possibly detonated. It's just a reminder of how we all need to take precautions with explosives and call the police in situations like this.
