An explosive device found Saturday near Fountain Creek was a real Claymore anti-personnel mine, Fountain police said Monday.

A citizen found the device shortly after 6 p.m. and brought it to police. After it was determined to be real, Fort Carson military police took over the investigation.

Fountain police urged citizens to never touch a suspicious device, but to contact police immediately.

The Colorado Springs Regional Explosives Unit helped in the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Carson military police at 526-2333. To remain anonymous, call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 634-7867.
