Unexploded WW II ordnance found on Maui

By Associated Press

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) Police on Maui say an unexploded bomb, likely left over from World War II, was found in a Puunene sugar cane field.

The Maui News reports that the aerial bomb was discovered by an employee of the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. during a weed control operation. It was found just east of the old Puunene School. The area once hosted a military base during World War II.

Police were called and photographed the rusted cylindrical ordnance, which was about 2 feet long by 4 to 6 inches wide. The photographs were immediately sent to the U.S. Army's Explosive Ordnance Division. Army officials determined it posed no immediate danger.

A trench was dug Tuesday and the bomb was detonated on location.

No injuries were reported.
