GOLD HILL, Ore. – Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies are warning
people to be wary of old military souvenirs tucked away in storage. On
Thursday, January 4, 2018, a Gold Hill woman reported finding a World
War II-style mortar shell in a shed on her property. It had been stored
there as long as she’d been in the residence — more than 30 years.

Deputies responded and requested assistance from the Oregon State
Police Explosives Unit. A military Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD)
unit was then sent from the Portland area to collect the device. In the
meantime, deputies notified neighbors and blocked off the area. The
EOD team took the mortar to a safe location for detonation. Nobody
was injured during the incident.
