A landscaper digging in the front yard of a Calabasas home on Monday afternoon stumbled upon a World War II relic — an empty MK II hand grenade shell. 

The grenade shell was found about 4:20 p.m. at a home in the 24700 block of Calle Largo, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Several nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution and the grenade body was taken away for disposal.

The evacuation lasted about two hours, the Sheriff's Department said.
