(Newser) – Adrian Ayers was just trying to bury his cat yesterday when he found something that triggered a neighborhood evacuation. The 37-year-old Ohio man hit on a metal box full of bullets and what he thought was C-4, WKRC 12 reports. Police evacuated two city blocks, going door to door to tell residents to clear out, according the Wilmington News Journal. A sheriff’s office bomb squad later determined the explosives to be five three-quarter sticks of TNT. There’s still no word on how or why it wound up in Ayers’ backyard.
