Officers of the Polish Border Guard came to the place of the find and inspected the item. They notified the Police from Sokółka, who in turn called in a sapper patrol from Białystok. It turned out that the unexploded ordnance was an air bomb from World War II. The object was removed and transported to a secure location for controlled detonation.
