This is a fish tale that two men in Clinton County will be telling for a long time.
The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office tells 6 News that the men were dragging a magnet through the Looking Glass River near Chandler Road south of Round Lake Road just after 1:00 p.m. today.
They attracted a metal object that they dragged to the surface and when they took a good look at it they quickly called the Sheriff’s Office.
The men had pulled up what appeared to be a military-type explosive device, similar to a rocket round for a shoulder-mounted launcher.
The deputies called the Michigan State Police Bomb Squad and they figured out that the device was a dud practice round but they still destroyed it.
Now the question is how that came to end up in the middle of the river.
That investigation is continuing.
