Police investigate unusual find at recycling plant

Ammo found

Metro Police this afternoon were summoned to examine what appeared to be military ammunition found at a recycling facility in North Las Vegas this afternoon.

Lt. Mark Reddon said officers were called to Republic Services just west of West Gowan Road and North Commerce Street about 5 p.m., where they found a "military type of object." It was not clear this evening what the object was.

Police quickly determined the item was not hazardous or explosive.
