HENRICO, VA (NBC12) - Henrico Police bomb techs detonated a live cannonball found at Richmond International Airport. 

The explosive was in the cargo area of an SUV parked on the third level of the South Garage.
 
TSA inspectors discovered it Thursday during a routine check. 

The cannonball was detonated at the Henrico Police firing range. 

The airport's public safety director says they don't know who the vehicle belongs to at this point, but are running the plates to reach the owner.
