Kauai tourist stumbles across spent smoke grenade on beach

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports that a touris on Kauʻi found a spent smoke grenade on Kealia Beach this morning.

Officers from the Kauai Police Department and an explosive specialist from the Transportation Security Administration examined the grenade and determined that it was likely spent, as indicated by its missing pin and a hole on the bottom of the canister.

The device will be used as a training aid for TSA employees.

Recently Kauaʻi has had a series of munitions washing ashore.    Are these the opala (trash) from RIMPAC last summer?
