Neighborhood evacuated after 75 rounds of ammunition found

“SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Police Department’s Bomb Squad was called to a Southwest Side neighborhood Saturday after dozens of rounds of ammunition were found underneath a home.

The ammunition was discovered on the 7900 block of Dempsey Drive, near Old Pearsall Road and Southwest Military Drive, around 2:45 p.m. Saturday.

Capt. Troy Balcar of the San Antonio Fire Department said a family member found a sealed box with about 75 rounds of decades-old ammunition underneath the house. He said the rounds were about 40 years old, based on a date written on the box. Half a dozen nearby homes were evacuated for about three hours.

“This is definitely a big danger, because they’ve been under there so long,” Balcar said. “They’ve rusted, they’ve been exposed to the weather, elements outside so we definitely want to get them disposed of as quickly as possible.”

Family members said a veteran who served for more than 30 years lived at the house until he passed away recently.

This is the second time old ammunition has been found at the home. Just last week, the bomb squad spent about half an hour disposing of shotgun shells found there.”

I have tons of surplus ammo that have corrosive primers that was purchased over the last 10 yrs.

Think about how long ago it was produced

Someone is making much ado about nothing

  1. Facebook is not allowing me to post from WordPress using the Facebook tab. Could it be my Samsung device. lol

  2. Bomb squad for ammo…Texas is well on its way to becoming CA. Liberals following the same playbook: infest the populated cities with welfare voters and screw the rest.

  3. Maybe the kids on the bomb squad are trying to justify their existance? Lots of taxpayer money gets wasted,er I mean used for training and fancy equipment ,gotta make it look good for the uninformed masses.
