TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Topeka police say an old military ordnance was found buried underground near the police impound lot.

Police say the device was found early Friday by workers for Torgeson Electric, who were digging while preparing for a potential project.

Lt. Colleen Stuart says the device was removed by an explosives unit from Fort Riley, which will safely dispose of it safely.

Street around the area just north of downtown Topeka that were blocked off were reopened Friday afternoon.

Stuart says searchers found no similar objects in the area.
