Photo of the Day: Ordnance in a Box

antitaknround0823

This picture shows some old ordnance in a cardboard box that we recently dropped off at the Dixon IL police department.  The box was dropped off by an elderly gentleman who had an affiliation with a nearby gun range and appears to contain a M9 anti-tank rifle grenade.  The munitions were taken to a nearby garage and later disposed of by the county bomb squad.  The Dixon Police department posted a picture of the box on Twitter with the message “If you find an unexploded WWII anti-tank round in your home, PLEASE, don’t drive it to the police department in a cardboard box.  Call us and we will come to you to help dispose of it.”
