Man Brings Live Mortar Round Into Police Station

SAUGERTIES -- A Saugerties man caused quite the scare at a local police station this week.

Officers say the man walked in on Wednesday with a live mortar round slung over his shoulder. The incident prompted an hours-long evacuation of the building.

The man says he found the mortar in his newly-purchased home as he was cleaning. He didn't know it was a live explosive and didn't know what to do with it. Police believe the man just wanted to turn the explosive over to them.
