Baggage screeners at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport discovered the unexpected in the luggage of teenagers returning from London.
Drugs, booze, cash? Nope! World War 1 explosives! The 16 and 17 year olds found the old artillery shells at a French World War 1 artillery range during a field trip.
They attempted to transport the shells home in their checked baggage.
A bomb disposal crew found the shells to be inert with no chance of blowing up.
After officials seized the bombs, the teens were questioned and allowed to travel home to Seattle. No criminal charges were filed against the youths.
I was born and raised in the Grand Rapids Area. I started working in radio in Whitehall in 1985. Went back to Grand Rapids for less than a year and got a better gig in Muskegon in September of 1986. I also worked at a few restuarants and in construction while going to school before going full time in radio.
I started rockin' with WMRR in March of 2009 and never looked back! I always loved rock music and finally get to work with it everyday!
