Our NJ pest control experts are used to dealing with a wide range of insects and wildlife. A pair of technicians in Florida recently made an unexpected “catch” when they discovered one of their traps containing live ammunition.
An Unusual Form of “Bait”
Last September the technicians were making the rounds of rodent traps they had set in the San Messina neighborhood of Weston, FL. They were surprised to find a loaded rifle clip and spare bullets inside a trap located in a relatively quiet area.
Traps are rebaited once a month, so the ammo had likely been there for less than four weeks. But since the items were rusty, police believe ammo had been in the trap for at least several days.
Who’s Behind It?
For safety purposes, the traps are locked, but the ammo appeared to have been placed inside via the pest portal. Police took possession of the items and they’re concerned that someone, possibly even a child, was attempting to hide the ammo.
William Black, one of the technicians, expressed concern about their find. He termed it “creepy,” particularly in light of the violent acts that have been in the news over recent years.
