Bomb squad destroys marker flare found on beach

December 31, 2018

DENNIS, Mass. (AP) — The Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad says it exploded suspected ordnance discovered at a Cape Cod beach over the weekend.

The Dennis Police Department received a report of an unexploded ordinance Sunday afternoon from a person walking on the beach.

The Cape Cod Times reports the item was determined to be a deteriorated marine marker flare that washed ashore.

Officials decided to explode the item in place because it was unsafe to transport.
