Navy EOD along with DOCARE arrived on scene at approximately 3:15 pm. The object was deemed old and very deteriorated so it was not moved far for safety reasons. It was moved to a sand beach approximately 75 yards north of 4950 Makena Road. It was identified as possibly a 1940’s WW II mortar round. It was buried in the sand and detonated using a very small charge at approximately 3:45 pm. No incidents, damage or harm to anything. All personnel departed the scene at 4:00 pm.
The location is the area of “Five Graves”, approximately 150 yards north of Makena Landing at 4950 Makena Road.
