Military rocket launcher left out for trash pickup in Texas4/21/2012
"Honey, please take out the trash. Don't forget the rocket launcher." It seems an unlikely phrase, but somehow a U.S. military rocket launcher made it to the curb this week for casual trash pickup, causing alarm for Kingwood, Texas, garbage collectors. After they refused to take it, a neighbor called the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which sent officials to confiscate the 3-foot-long device. A bomb squad was called in and the FBI was notified. Although the weapon had been "demilled" (meaning it was no longer a military item), the once-used launcher carried a military serial number. However, it was filled only with cobwebs and spider eggs, not explosives.
What would you do if you found a rocket launcher on the curb?
