WWII ammo found in Bellows Falls basement

Posted: Updated:

A homeowner in Bellows Falls had quite the explosive find earlier this week.

A cache of World War II ammo-- including two grenades, high-explosive mortar rounds, and anti-aircraft rounds-- were found in the basement of the home off Minard Pond Road on Monday.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports nearby residents were temporarily evacuated while the bomb squad removed the 70-year-old items, which appear to be demilitarized.

Those items will be now be examined by the Vermont Air National Guard.
