WWII Munitions Wash Ashore (Again)

Pacific Beach, Washington Police responded to reports of at least 10 rounds of WWII ammunition washing ashore. Police confirmed the ordnance was of military origin and contacted the EOD team from Joint Base Lewis-McChord for technical assistance.

EOD safely disposed of the munitions which included 20mm rounds (exact nomenclatures not reported). Following the incident, the local police searched the immediate are for other ordnance but none was found.

The Sheriff's Office issued a warning to the public not to move, touch or transport any suspect ordnance items found. This is not the first time munitions were found in the area, last year 20mm rounds were found encased in black sludge that also required EOD support.
