WORLD WAR ONE BOMB DEEMED SAFE AT CITY BUILDING
Port Huron Police report on an incident Monday afternoon that saw a local man bringing a World War One-era bomb to the Municipal Office Center, but after examination it turns out the device was not a danger or a hazard to the public. Police Sgt. Dave Seghi says the man, a recreational diver, found the device in Lake St. Clair down around the Selfridge National Guard Air Base area, and brought it up to the MOC. After being told to leave the device outside the MOC the Michigan State Police Bomb Squad was called in. They determined the device was inert and thus safe to handle. Seghi says the area in front of the Municipal Office Center was cordoned off until the bomb squad arrived to examine the device. The building was not evacuated, as the device was a safe distance away. Once the device was deemed safe, it was turned back over to the diver.
