RESEDA (CBS) — A bomb squad has been dispatched to Reseda to investigate a possible military ordnance.

The device was found just after 3:45 p.m. at the American Legion Post 308 in the 7300 block of Camby Avenue.

Derek Bell, who was flying overhead, reported that technicians from the bomb squad made two attempts to retrieve the device which appeared to be the size of a hand grenade or hand smoke grenade and took X-rays.

Authorities have returned to the command post and were trying to decide how to dispose of the device, Bell added.
