Marshfield police say they have identified what they initially thought was a possible explosive device found on Rexhame Beach on Tuesday.
Marshfield Deputy Fire Chief Jack Beagle said the object is a commercial compressed air cylinder, about 4-5 inches long and 1 inch in circumference.
“It could possibly have been from a paint ball gun, a nail gun, we’re not sure right now–but the state police did take it away,” said Beagle.
Beagle said that this type of air cylinder is generally not dangerous.
“Well anything can happen, but under fire conditions, like anything that’s compressed– any type of gas compressed–under fire conditions becomes a dangerous weapon,” said Beagle.
