Mortar shell discovered in Torrey Highlands
SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A surveyor came across an undetonated mortar shell on an open tract of land in Torrey Highlands Monday, prompting a bomb squad call-out.
An ordnance-handling team was called in to “disrupt,” or neutralize, the device and dispose of it, SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque said.
Due to the openness of the locale where the shell turned up, no road closures or evacuations were necessary, he said.
The origin of the weapon was unknown.
