MIRI: A shocking discovery was made at the Lutong beach here on Wednesday (Jan 20) when the tide was low.
An object resembling a World War II-era bomb stuck out like a sore thumb, sending shivers down Mohd Nasri Razali’s spine.
The food delivery rider made the find around 2.30pm, and a bomb disposal unit and several policemen from the Lutong police station and Miri IPD were dispatched to the location.
“I quickly alerted the police because I was worried that it might explode,” said the 28-year-old at the scene.
Prior to the discovery, Nasri had just finished delivering an order. He then decided to take a break.
The object is believed to have weighed around 3kg.
The bomb disposal unit later removed the bomb and brought it to the Lambir shooting range to be detonated.
