Dynamite Detonated in North Haven

Posted on 30 October 2013


The Suffolk County Bomb Squad detonated live dynamite on a North Haven beach near the South Ferry dock on County Road 114 just before 4 p.m. on Monday, according to the Southampton Town Police Department.

A report was made to police just before 1 p.m. on Monday afternoon. Police secured the beach area, located over 150 yards from the South Ferry, for several hours before the dynamite was detonated. Police believe the dynamite was used to explode rocks for jetties.

Service on the South Ferry was not disrupted as a result of the incident.

It was the second explosive device police in Southampton contended with in a week. On Friday, October 25 police received a call about what appeared to be a grenade in Riverside. An investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is encouraged to call Southampton Town Detectives at 702-2230.
