A Maui storage facility is on lockdown after a renter stumbled across what appeared to small, unexploded military ordnance.

The discovery was made at around 5:15 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, by a person renting a unit at Kihei Self Storage on Lipoa Street in Kihei.

Authorities say the person cleaning out the unit discovered the ordnance in a container left behind by the previous renter.
