BOZEMAN - A demilitarized landmine has been removed from a student's vehicle on the Montana State University campus.
Parking Lot 1 at MSU was closed Tuesday while law enforcement worked to remove the piece of war memorabilia from the car. The parking lot opened shortly after 3:15.
Law enforcement said there was no explosive material left inside of the landmine. The landmine will not be returned to the student, and the investigation is ongoing.
"There's nothing in there that would lead us to believe that it was modified in any way, as manufactured," Marvin Weber, the team lead for the Lewis and Clark Co. Bomb Squad told reporters. "But without the high explosive as intended. At this point we're just going to take it off campus and we'll be good."
Police say the student is cooperating with them and they have no reason to believe that they were aware the device could be dangerous.
