CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA, Calif. -
A San Diego County beach was evacuated over the weekend after someone found a military explosive in the sand.
The Los Angeles Times says a stretch of Cardiff State Beach was shut down for two hours on Sunday.
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department says a beachgoer found the explosive and took it to lifeguards, who alerted deputies.
A sheriff's bomb squad removed the explosive for disposal, and the beach was reopened.
Officials did not say what type of explosive it was.
