Hiker Stumbles Upon Old Ordnance

Mill Valley, California The Berkeley Police Department bomb squad successfully disabled what appeared to be old UXO discovered by a hiker on a popular hiking trail, according to the Marin County Sheriff's Office. Sheriff's Lt. Jesse Klinge said a hiker just outside the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, found two rusty military-green ammunition canisters, one above-ground and the second partially buried near the trail.

The nearby trails were closed off to the public while the bomb squad disposed of two devices and the area was reopened the next morning. It's unknown how the munitions ended up on the trail.
