Record Observer - - News -

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.
