Grenade launchers sent to home

October 09, 2001

The state fire marshal's office was investigating yesterday the delivery of grenade launchers to a home in Harford County, a spokesman said.

Marlene Remakis of the 2800 block of Belcamp Road in Belcamp called the Harford County sheriff's office about 11:10 a.m. after she received a delivery of three packages, one of which contained four barrel grenade launchers, police said.

Deputy State Fire Marshal Carson Widdoes removed the launchers, which he described as having 40 mm, 12-inch barrels that attach to an M-16 or AR-15 rifle.

"Ownership of these items is very restricted," said Deputy State Fire Marshal W. Faron Taylor. "We're continuing our investigation to determine the identity of the intended recipient."
