The bomb squad responded to a Rochester home near the corner of North Street and Alphonse Street as a precaution Monday evening.

Police say the owner, who recently purchased the home, was doing some yard work and dug up a military-style munition of some sort.

The bomb squad came in to check it out. Police don't know the status of the item. They believe it was left there by the previous homeowner.
