“Everyone was handing it off to everybody else,” Schule said.
He was surprised at the amount of work it took to get the military to pick up its lost missile launcher.
Schule initially was nervous when he found the weapon. But as the hours passed, he did what most guys would do — marvel at the mind-blowing awesomeness of finding a missile launcher. He posted photos on Facebook and called his buddies, saying: “Guess what I found?”
Schule called the military police at Fort Sam. But their jurisdiction doesn’t extend off the post. Schule’s information was passed along to an Army criminal investigator, who visited Schule on Wednesday morning — about 19 hours after he started making phone calls.
Three hours later, an Army ordinance disposal team retrieved the weapon. There is still no word on how it got to Schule's yard. http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/Comal_man_finds_missile_launcher.html -via Queuebot
TSA would have been on his ass in a heartbeat.
Took them 19 hours to pick it up but I bet you if he DID try to sell it on craigslist it would have taken them half that to try to arrest him for something.
But it makes a GREAT new story...
