Cannonball found in Enfield is inert


Investigators told Eyewitness News that a cannonball found in an Enfield backyard Friday night was inactive.

After finding the device outside his home on Cottage Green Road, the unidentified resident saw online it was explosive and called police.

However, police have determined that the cannonball is inert.

Police added that no charges will be filed.

On Friday night, 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.
