Bomb squad responds to device found in the water

Key Largo - What turned out to be an inert Navy training mine brought the Sheriff's Office bomb squad to Pennekamp State Park Monday morning.

Detective Sgt. Bobby Randolph and Inspector Butch Albury, members of the Sheriff's bomb squad, responded to the park to reports that something that looked like it might be an explosive device was found about a mile off shore of the main channel into Pennekamp State Park. After calling the Navy, and sending digital photographs of the device to them, it was finally determined the device was a mine warfare training device that is not explosive in nature and is used in Naval training exercises.
