Eddyville, Kentucky Lyon County Deputies joined forces with Fort Campbell EOD Technicians to dispose of explosives discovered in the personal belongings of a late veteran. According to a social media post from Sheriff Brent White of the Lyon County Sheriff's Office, they found yellow banded TNT, hand grenades, M117 booby trap devices, military grade blasting caps, and other military ordnance on the property.
White took the opportunity to remind anyone who comes across explosive devices to avoid touching or moving them. Instead, citizens should notify a local law enforcement agency so they can properly dispose of them.
The sheriff's office also issued thanks to the 184th Ordnance Battalion, 49th OD CO out of Ft. Campbell for their assistance, and to deputies Joe Witherspoon and Seth Pool who assisted in the safe removal of the items.
