Default Howitzer shell clears out Philly police station

Bomb squad called after man turns in old shell that was still live

PHILADELPHIA - A man who turned in an old artillery shell to Philadelphia police has learned a lesson: Call ahead.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that police district headquarters was evacuated Saturday after the man brought in a live projectile for a howitzer tank.

Police say the 53-year-old man got the shell in 1977 from a friend who was a Marine and had kept it in storage since then. He recently decided to turn it in for safety reasons.

Police Lt. Frank Vanore says the city bomb squad took the device to a disposal site. He says all indications are that the projectile was live.

Police say the man is not expected to be charged for bringing the shell to the station.
