Fishing boat dredges up unexploded ordnance

A State Police bomb squad technician removes unexploded ordinance from a fishing boat in Hyannis
HYANNIS - At 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning Barnstable Police and Hyannis Fire responded to a call that a New Bedford scalloper, Jenna Lee, fishing off the waters of Delaware besides catching scallops had picked up a 26-inch naval shell and returned to Hyannis Harbor at the public pier next to Baxter's on Pleasant Street in Hyannis. The area was secured and the State Police Bomb Squad came and did x-rays, tests and more tests and after four hours called a naval expert from Newport, RI. After a dog checked the device, the naval expert conferred with officials and they decided to call a Barnstable DPW dump truck loaded with sand to take the ordnance to the town landfill for detonation. A deep hole was dug in the middle of the sand in the truck and the State Police technician, garbed in protective gear, gingerly took the bomb off the boat, climbed a ladder up the rear of the truck, and buried the device in the sand. The truck proceeded up Pleasant Street with police and fire units front and rear. At the landfill, the shell was successfully exploded. Some neighbors near by reported the explosion and smoke to police who explained to them what it was. (Story and photos by Frank Paparo).
