An unexploded ordnance was detonated without incident after it was removed from a beach located at North Kihei Road in Maui, near Mile Marker 2.
Maui police met with the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team from Oahu at about 8:15 a.m. Sunday to coordinate the safe removal of the unexploded ordnance.
The unexploded ordnance was identified as a M301A3 81-millimeter mortar illumination round. It was safely transported to the Ukumehame Firing range for safe detonation.
The beach front was reopened at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday.
The unexploded ordnance was discovered by a diver and brought out of the water and onto the shore at about 2:12 p.m. Saturday.
Police blocked the beach area, approximately one hundred feet in all directions of the ordnance.
The state Department of Land and Natural Resources monitored the scene before the EOD team arrived.
