On Thursday, June 30, 2022, several streets around Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters in Shalimar were temporarily blocked while they investigated a possible “unexploded ordnance.”
- Apparently, an individual found the item in question in a storage unit.
- They then brought the item to the OCSO because they weren’t sure if it was an unexploded ordnance.
“We’re not taking any chances,” wrote the OCSO. “We’re having it checked out by the experts.”
Eglin’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) was called in to assist. It was determined that the item was a military training practice round that gets fired out of a grenade launcher.
