Treasure hunter finds WWII ordnance on Tumon Bay by Krystal Paco KUAM News (GU) July 18, 2014Guam - Parts of Tumon Bay were evacuated this afternoon after one man's hunt for treasure uncovered something more.
Thirty feet from the shore of Reef Hotel, a local man and his metal detector uncovered a reminder from the island's past. "There was a person in the water with a metal detector and they found a five inch US naval projectile that's armed," Navy EOD Senior Chief Petty Officer Brian Fitzgerald. Just in time for Guam's 70th Liberation Day celebrations, Senior Chief Fitzgerald says the projectile dates back to World War II.
Measuring in at 18" long and 5" in diameter, the item put a shutdown to areas of the beach from Westin Resort to Reef Hotel as the Guam Police Department, Guam Fire Department, Office of Civil Defense/Guam Homeland Security, and EOD responded to the scene.
