A family renovating a barn in the south Twin Cities metro area found what police believe is a pipe bomb. 

According to Rosemount Police Department, officers were dispatched to the 2100 block of 120th Street West just after 3:45 p.m. Wednesday after a family found the possible pipe bomb. 

Because a fuse was still attached to the suspected bomb, police requested the assistance of the St. Paul Bomb Squad, which removed the device from the barn and will dispose of it. 

Police believe the device was in the barn for a long time and nothing suspicious is suspected.
