The South Toms River Police Department, Ocean County Sheriff's Department, and New Jersey State Police were called to an old building on Atlantic City Boulevard in South Toms River after workers uncovered two torpedoes.

The torpedoes were uncovered as workers removed the building formerly known as the Shanty House, an old gardening and antiques business in South Toms River.

The torpedoes caused initial concern because they looked like live ones. The explosive ordnance crew discovered the blue paint that designates training rounds had been painted over so they looked like live torpedoes. The torpedoes were taken back to Naval Weapons Station Earle.

Patch has more images of the torpedoes and and workers.
