Self-storage employees cleaning out the unit of an evicted tenant Monday discovered something disturbing—a land mine.

Police in Athens-Clarke, Ga., said the mine contained about a pound of C-4 explosives. A military bomb squad was called to dispose of the mine.

The man who rented the unit was storing military equipment and appeared to have served in the military, police said. He may be questioned by federal investigators and could face charges.
