3 detained with live mortar round at gate to Pearl Harbor
15 Jan 2020 — #Homefront
A live mortar round was found in a vehicle at a gate to the sprawling Pearl Harbor military base, shutting down the base for hours and leading three people to be taken into custody, military officials said Wednesday.
Gates at all entrances to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam were closed for around two hours, but the Nimitz Gate where the incident occurred remained shut until Wednesday morning while a bomb squad investigated the suspects' vehicle.
“The security guard first noticed the smell of marijuana and then looked inside the vehicle and saw what was potential ordnance,” base spokesman Charles Anthony. “It’s very strange that this vehicle had a live mortar round in it.”
