St. Pete Beach Evacuated, Bomb Squad on Scene!

Authorities have evacuated a section of St. Peter Beach to investigate the discovery of an apparent old military device.


Around 8:40 a.m., a walker on St. Pete beach noticed a large cylindrical object along the surf line near the 22nd Avenue beach access, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies responded to the site and reported the object to be about four feet long and having a cone-shaped cap on one side. They said it had barnacles and appeared to have been submerged for a long time.

Deputies evacuated the area, set up a 300-yard perimeter and contacted the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad, which responded to the site and determined the object may be a military ordnance.

The bomb squad contacted MacDill Air Force Base for assistance. No other information has been released.
