No Deal for Pawn Shop Customer on WWI Projectile

North Port, Florida The North Port Police Department (NPPD) was called to a pawn shop after a customer brought in ordnance. Traffic jams ensued as Northbound traffic was rerouted in the area while U.S. Air Force EOD responded to inspect the projectile.

"The device found turned out to be a WWI anti-ship personnel round which had never been fired," police said. "An individual had attempted to sell the device at a nearby pawn shop who informed them that it could be dangerous. The individual then called NPPD."

Explosives experts from North Port, Sarasota and MacDill Air Force Base removed the ordnance "without incident", according to police.
