Military gear near Bluffton PD removed for disposal

Military ordnance that may be as old as World War I that was taken to the Bluffton Police Dept. has been removed by the military for proper disposal, according to police.

A man arrived just after 9 a.m. Monday to the Bluffton Police Dept. saying he had some military ordnance that he wanted to dispose of. Out of caution the area around the vehicle has been blocked off from civilian traffic, according to a Bluffton Police Dept. news release.

The man told police the gear has been in his family and could date back to World War I.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad and the Marine Corp Air Station E.O.D. Team responded. They confirmed that it is military ordinance, according to the release. They don't have more details about the contents.
