WWII Bomb Found in Riverside Backyard

Riverside Police Department

This WWII-era bomb was found in a Riverside backyard.

Workers cleaning up the backyard of a rRverside home made a surprising discovery -- a World War II-era aerial bomb.

The bomb squad was sent to the home that had been in foreclosure and was empty. Police blocked off streets in the area while the bomb was examined.

It turned out to be a "practice bomb" and was not a danger because it contained no explosives.
