Possible Explosives Removed From Washington Home

No charges are expected after old military explosives were found in a home in Washington.

Police say they got a call Tuesday night and found "objects of possible dangerous nature" in a home on East 12th Street. As a precautionary measure, police contacted ATF agents. The ATF, along with the FBI and the Cherry Point Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit, removed two small questionable items from the home.

Authorities say there was no danger to surrounding homes and that the resident, who they say is a collector, was cooperative during their investigation.

    It is really amazing how the media can blow some misguided information so out of proportion. I do know of this person and for a fact he has always been caught up in the history of wars. He would never have anything in his possession that would hurt his family or his neighbors. I also understand that he would like for this story to be made public so the REAL facts can be told. I applaud his efforts for getting the real truth out. I was always wondering, will he get back his items after YOU are sure that they are of no threat? It seems to me that they are indeed his and should be returned to him. People's reputations can be destroyed in a heartbeat because of someone who wants a headline and fame for themselves. I do applaud the police department in how the matter was handled as they were only doing their jobs. I also understand that they were not called out for "weapons of mass destruction", but they were there for a possible dog bite incident. He does not own a dog. GO FIGURE??

    Remember the grenade desktop ornaments that had "complaint department" and a "take a number" tag attached to the pin? Glad this was handled smoothly. Bravo for not making it more than it was!
