Georgetown County sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene where they stayed overnight until troops from Shaw Air Force Base arrived in order to take care of the ordnances.

A viewer sent WMBF pictures of the troops removing the ordnances. It’s not clear how many were found or how they got there.

Deputies are urging people to avoid the area while troops safely remove the ordnances.
