The Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office has received multiple reports of military 20 mm anti-aircraft high explosive rounds being located in the North Beach area of Grays Harbor County.
Chief Criminal Deputy Brad Johansson said in a press release that these rounds are described as being 6-8 inches in length and 20mm in diameter. They have the resemblance of large rifle ammunition.
Many of these rounds have been located encased in a black rock or sludge matter. These rounds should be considered dangerous.
These military rounds are believed to be from the 1940’s which makes their stability unknown. Johansson stressed that these rounds can explode upon impact.
If you locate or if you have collected one of these rounds, please leave it in place, mark its location, and call Grays Harbor County Dispatch at 360-533-8765.
