Standoff Results in Surprise UXO Find

Weldon Springs, Missouri When authorities were called in to calm down a potentially suicidal man in Weldon Springs, they found another dangerous matter at the scene. Following a brief standoff, after which the man was subdued, police found a potential UXO inside his vehicle.

Local businesses were evacuated and the surrounding area was cleared. The St. Charles County bomb squad along with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and FBI bomb squads worked together on this incident. They believe the UXO was possibly a WWII bazooka round. The ordnance was taken care of by the combined EOD teams, and the area was opened back to the public.
