Upon investigating, police discovered the device was an old artillery projectile. Local officers called the Pennsylvania State Police Hazardous Device and Explosives Section, and further examination revealed the projectile was made in Germany during the World War II era and was most likely a training or smoke round.
State police called a U.S. Army Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit, which determined that, because of the projectile’s age and condition, the best course of action was to destroy the projectile rather than transport it any distance. The projectile was safely detonated and destroyed in a remote area in the Elizabethtown area.
