UXO Found in Trash Bag in Residential Area

Oahu, Hawaii A landscaping crew clearing a cut tree found a plastic bag containing a mortar round. The crew called the Honolulu police to report the find. The police responded with technical support from a bomb disposal team. Nearby residents were evacuated as the technicians investigated the item. The munition, identified as a live mortar round, was transported to Schofield Barracks for proper disposal.

Authorities are unsure how the mortar round ended up in the area but suspect that someone discarded it there along with other household trash. A search of the area did not reveal any additional munitions.
