Bomb Squad Update

the U-S Army Fort McCoy bomb squad from Wisconsin detonated the device tonight at the quarry off Montague Road... this...after a man entered the p-s-b earlier today with a world war two era mortar round. He says he found it at wood park... and brought it to police so they could dispose of it. For public safety reasons...The sheriff's department closed down entrances to the building...And halted traffic on State Street in front of the P-S-B in case the bomb exploded. The county bomb squad was called in to retrieve the device.
