Discovery Of Inert Military Projectile Spurs Evacuations In Jurupa Valley

JURUPA VALLEY ( — Authorities say the discovery of an old inert military projectile led deputies to evacuate a portion of a Jurupa Valley neighborhood.

A resident called authorities on Saturday afternoon around 5:10 p.m. to report that he had unearthed a small device from his home in the 8000 block of Pyrite Street.

Upon arriving on scene, deputies had the resident place the device on the ground.

Officials subsequently evacuated the immediate area while a hazardous device team investigated.

The device was later determined to be inert and was removed from the area.
