A Civil War cannonball was been discovered in the basement of a Hollywood home when the owner was digging out some old pipes.

The bomb squad, which was called in around 11 a.m., feared the ball was filled with unstable black powder.

Goggin says he trusted his steady hands to carry the cannonball through the front yard and hand it over to authorities.

He also says he’s glad to have it out of his home.

“I just didn’t think it was a good idea to have ancient munitions in your basement,” he told KTLA.

The cannonball was eventually deemed safe, according to Sgt. Sal Ogaz of the Los Angeles Police Department.
