MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) -- A bomb squad was called to a Manitowoc residence after a man found old explosives among the items he had purchased at an auction.

Manitowoc police say the citizen had recently bought several truckloads of various materials at the auction in Mount Calvary and took them back home. He called police Thursday after finding the old and weathered explosives among the items he purchased.

Police called the Brown/Outagamie County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad which took the explosives to a remote location in Manitowoc and destroyed them.
