A Comal County Texas man found a green metallic tube when he was out cutting trees on his property. He says he thought it had a military look to it, like a rocket launcher. As it turns out – he was right.
Oddly enough he took his find back to his home and displayed it on his dinning room table! A decal on the equipment discovered by Jarrette Schule said: “Guided Missile and Launcher, Surface Attack.”
“I had never seen it before,” said Schule, 34. “I looked at it, and it kind of looked like a missile launcher.”
The device was confiscated on Wednesday afternoon by an ordnance disposal team from Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.
Schule discovered the unarmed anti-tank weapon on Tuesday on his land miles away from a military installation.
“I don’t know if it fell out of something or if somebody just dumped it,” he said.
Schule did not want to leave the launcher on his vacant property, so he loaded it in his truck and took it to his house. He’s said to have spent Tuesday afternoon calling the FBI, Homeland Security and other agencies to report his find.
Military officials are trying to track who last had the launcher in their possession via the serial number that was found on it.
