LAKELAND, Fla. — Lakeland Linder Airport has been given the “all clear” after a live missile was found on the property Friday evening, officials said.
According to Eugene Conrad, director of Lakeland Linder Airport, the airport was given the all clear.
Officials said a container with a live missile with explosives on it was found Friday evening. The missile was live, but it not armed.
The container arrived with pieces of a plane from a company called Draken International. Officials said containers usually have inert missiles in them.
For some reason, this one container had a live missile inside, officials said.
Lakeland Fire Rescue and ATF are on the scene and a unit from MacDill is on the way to remove the missile.
The missile should be removed within an hour, officials said.
