Whats the guidance on this? I feel a call to EOD would be an over reaction in this case?

I found a live timer from an incendiary device a few months back, I contacted the landowner, he didn't want it on his land to much fuss or publicity, so i called the necessary people, it was blown up where it was found with little knowledge or fuss to anyone
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
