AUGUSTA — Police and the bomb squad were called to the Maine Army National Guard headquarters at Camp Keyes today when a woman arrived with a World War II mortar round.

The woman, who is from Solon, took the ammunition to the military installation around noon in an attempt to dispose of it properly, said Sgt. Mark Desjardin of the Augusta Police.

“Apparently her husband was a World War II veteran,” Desjardin said.

Camp Keyes officials called police, who called in the bomb squad to dispose of the round, Desjardin said.

A mortar round is a shell-like bomb fired from a mortar tube.

There are no charges as a result of the incident, Desjardin said.
