An interesting discovery in the Village of Albion on Sunday when a homeowner digging some holes to replace his front porch found something suspicious.

The object appeared to be a pipe with a fuse attached at the Caroline Street home, so the bomb squad was called in.

The squad determined the device did have an explosive material in it, but it was rusted out.

They estimated the device had been in the ground for at least 15 years. It was discarded safely.
