Bomb squad recovers military ordnance in Stevensville shed
STEVENSVILLE — The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office Bomb Squad responded to a residence on Kent Point Road Tuesday, June 7, to recover possible explosives.
The resident was cleaning out his deceased father’s tool shed when he found two containers of what appeared to be military ordnance among the tools and personal effects, said Bomb Squad Commander Jack Waldner.
The bomb squad X-rayed the boxes and found they contained a 60 mm shell and a Mark II grenade, also called a pineapple grenade. They were mostly inert, Waldner said.
In this case, “they were not live. There was really no hazard,” he said, but you never know.
The bomb squad took custody of the ordnance and removed it to be disposed of properly, Waldner said.
