Army Corps unearths glass jugs on Glenbrook Road

The Army Corps of Engineers unearthed three broken glass jugs on Monday at their "Pit 3" investigation at 4825 Glenbrook Rd., a Corps spokesman told The Eagle today.

The find has generated questions as to whether a long sought-after munitions cache, known as the Sgt. Maurer burial pit, has finally been located.

An environmental specialist for the District Department of the Environment's toxic substance division, Dr. Richard Albright, told The Eagle rumors of the munitions cache have been based on aerial photography and WWI-era photos depicting Army Sergeant C. W. Maurer standing amid approximately 30 glass jugs similar to the ones found Monday.
