Virginia Police say they were notified Thursday about a military ordnance mortar round being located in the basement wall of a business. 

A contracting company working on the Arrowhead Bar was doing some work, locating the device. 

Police evacuated and closed down the 400 block of Chestnut Street for safety precautions, but the area has been reopened as of 5:05pm.

The Minnesota Duty Officer was notified, and the Minnesota Air National Guard were brought to identify, analyze, and safely remove the mortar. The Virginia Police Department thanks the teams for their help.
