Police pick up torpedo dropped off at recycling center
A Puerto Rican metal recycling center received an unexpected drop-off this past weekend: a 6-foot torpedo.

Police seized the torpedo from Vega Aluminum Recycling Inc., along the island´s north coast, in the town of Quebradillas, the Associated Press reported. Puerto Rican authorities disposed of the torpedo, but did not tell the AP whether it had to be detonated.

The torpedo was dropped off on Feb. 24, the AP said. The recycling center alerted police about the ammunition that day.
