SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, June 28. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The National Police has neutralized an explosive device that appeared in a building in the palm town of Velhoco when its owners, heirs to it, found it cleaning a room.
The house, a country estate, had not been used for nearly fifty years and had been the property of the mother of the current owners, who approached it to clean it up so that it could be used again. That is when, while cleaning, they located an 88.9 mm military-type anti-tank rocket under the bed. Immediately afterwards, they left the house, locked it up, changed the bowler hat and informed the National Police of the facts.
In this way, the agents implemented the established protocol and communicated it to the members of TEDAX-NRBQ, in charge, among other things, of deactivating explosives. They went to the place, inspected the device and determined that it was not dangerous, which allowed it to be transferred to the El Fuerte military base, in Breña Baja, where it was detonated in a controlled manner.
