Local visitors who went swimming at the Aroma Beach Resort discovered a vintage bomb at the shoreline during the low tide at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
According to Naic Police chief, Supt. Janet Arinabo, the beachgoers reported their sighting of what resembled a metal tube to a resort staff, who then notified the officials of Barangay Munting.
The village officials, in turn, transmitted the report to the authorities.
Arinabo said she ordered her team to turn over the vintage bomb to the Explosives and Ordinance Device section of the Cavite Police in Cuartel, Imus City for proper action.
She said the bomb was 20 inches long and weighed 5 kg., including the seashells attached to it.
Meanwhile, village folks and beachgoers acknowledged the police for its immediate response and action.
They said it was good that the vintage bomb was instantly reported to the authorities, otherwise, scavengers could have spotted it and sold it to a junk shop, in which case it could have been mishandled and worse, people could have been harmed.
