WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The Waterloo Police Department Bomb Squad has determined a reported landmine found inside a Waterloo home was not active.

Around 2 p.m. Wednesday, the person living at 315 Bryant Avenue called the Waterloo Police Department and reported he had an explosive device. He advised officials that he believed the device was a live Claymore Anti-Personnel Mine.

The area was secured, and the bomb squad removed the device from the home Wednesday night. It has been evaluated and officials determined it was a training aid that had no ability to react.

Police tell us no charges have been filed. The bomb squad is now in possession of the device.
