Suspicious device found in storm drain

A strange, possibly dangerous object found in a storm drain in the 9300 block of Glenbrook Road in the Mantua neighborhood in Fairfax July 21 was determined to be an inert (training) round from a bazooka like those used in the Korean War, the Fairfax County Police Department reports. The device was discovered by a drain inspector. It is not known how the it ended up in a storm drain or how long it had been there.


  1. Kind of cool to think that thing has been there since the '50's.
