Man, grandson reel in 2 rifles magnet fishing near Miami

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A man went fishing with his grandson in Florida and found more than they were looking for.

They pulled two .50-caliber Barrett sniper rifles out of a canal near Miami.

Duane Smith says he saw a YouTube video on magnet fishing and wanted to try it with his 11-year-old grandson.

They dropped a 5-pound magnet in the canal and it went straight to the guns.

Smith called Miami-Dade police and officers took the weapons, which had their serial numbers filed off.

A detective told the Miami Herald that they’ll try to determine if they were used in a crime.
