Landfill UXO Scare

Harford County, Maryland Bomb disposal technicians were called to a Harford County landfill after a citizen reported seeing a person dump a wooden crate with military markings on it. There were also concerns about a suspect item, feared to be UXO.

The bomb technicians inspected two empty cardboard tubes used to store 105 mm rounds, but no rounds were found inside. The State Fire Marshal's Office was also called in to inspect the area. According to their report, "it was determined the items in question were cardboard tubes used to store 105 mm TPDS-T, an M724A1 cartridge used for gunnery training in tank mounted 105 mm gun cannons."

The bomb technicians, assisted by a Harford County Hazmat team, remained on the scene until the area was deemed safe.
