An Enfield resident discovered what appears to be a cannonball in their backyard Friday night.
After finding the device outside his home on Cottage Green Road, the unidentified resident saw online it was explosive and called police.
The Connecticut State Police Bomb Squad was called to the home. The area was cordoned off and no evacuations were made.
Residents were told to stay in their homes, while police are investigating.
