BREAKING: Bomb Squad Evacuates Beach To Investigate Possible ‘Military Type’ Explosive.
Locals reported seeing a large cylindrical object coming to shore along the coastline near a public beach access way in St. Petersburg, FL. Once authorities were notified, they turned to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad who evacuated the area and determined the object may be a military type ordinance, though it looks as it may have been submerged for some time. Calls have been placed to MacDill Air Force Base to see if anything on record would match the find.
As of this writing, the MacDill Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit has joined the Hillsborough County Bomb Squad in their investigation.
