Military Projectile Found On Cape Cod Beach

State Police

A military projectile possibly dating to the World War II era has been destroyed after it was found on a Wellfleet beach.

A fisherman found the device in the sand at Marconi Beach at about 3 p.m. Wednesday and alerted authorities.

The state police bomb squad responded and the device was blown up on the beach at about 7 p.m.

Officials kept curious spectators about 1,000 feet away from the explosion to protect them from shrapnel.

Sgt. Jerry Galizio of the bomb squad tells the Cape Cod Times that the military used area beaches as practice ranges during World War II, and it’s not uncommon for ordnance to be found even to this day.
