Biloxi bomb squad to detonate Civil War cannon balls





Two cannon balls, believed to be from the Civil War era, were turned over to Biloxi Police Thursday afternoon. A man brought the two cannon balls to the Public Safety Center on Porter Avenue.

The Biloxi Police Bomb Squad carefully removed the arms from the back of a pick-up truck and transferred them to a Bomb Squad vehicle. Officers then transported them to the firing range in Woolmarket to be safely detonated.
