ABERDEEN, S.D. (KELO) – Police in Aberdeen say they started their Halloween off with a bang.
Thursday morning, a detective was conducting a welfare check when they found a bazooka round.
Several people were evacuated from the neighborhood while crews from Ellsworth Air Force Base removed the rocket. It was taken to a gun range south of town and detonated safely.
Authorities say a soldier returned home with the bazooka round after serving in the Korean War.
No charges are expected.
