Police said a woman working on her rose bushes in the backyard of her Spartanburg home uncovered a buried handgun.
The woman called police about two weeks after finding the gun about 6 inches deep in the yard of her East Crescent Avenue home, according to the police report.
The woman told police she initially thought it was a toy, but then felt she needed to report the dug-up discovery.
According to the report, the woman said she has owned the home for 60 years and does not know where it came from.
Police said the gun was rusted and dirty and have yet to identify who it belongs to.
