SUMMIT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A man removing belongings that were left behind at a southern Michigan home he recently moved into turned up an old military mine.

The Jackson County sheriff’s department says it responded Friday to the home in Summit Township and authorities determined the mine wasn’t active. No one was hurt. The Michigan State Police bomb squad took the mine away so it could be destroyed.

Dakota Adams tells the Jackson Citizen Patriot (https://bit.ly/2eX46pm ) that the mine was in the upstairs bedroom of his new home. The 23-year-old moved in about two weeks ago.

Adams says there were a lot of old military items in the home. He says the home formerly belonged to a relative of a U.S. military veteran.
