Blotter: Homeowner discovers WWII tank shell in garage

SALISBURY — The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad was called to a Salisbury home Wednesday after the owner discovered a World War II tank shell in a garage.

The device was found in the 300 block of Heilig Avenue, said Salisbury Police Department spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

He said the police department contacted the bomb squad. Law enforcement contacted Fort Bragg to take possession of it. Personnel there determined it wasn’t a live shell and took care of disposing it.

Walker said this isn’t the first time they’ve had to have the bomb squad come in after such a discovery.
