Police disarm 'UFO detector' in New Jersey

A 'suspicious' device allegedly used to track UFOs was reported to the police in New Jersey State Park recently.
The incident, which took place on April 9th, saw local authorities attend the scene of a peculiar device - described as a 'UFO detector' - that had been discovered by a member of the public.

Comprised of a cylindrical metal can mounted onto some wood with a cable sticking out and a pole-like extension mounted on top, the strange object was found on Saw Dust Pile Road in Tabernacle.

Concerned that it could be some type of explosive device, officers called in a special bomb-sniffing dog unit to investigate the contraption for signs of dangerous substances.
"The device was carefully 'disarmed' by NJ State Park Police personnel by unplugging the headphone wire from the block of wood and the soup can it was plugged into," the department wrote.

"Although human kind and the visitors to New Jersey's State Parks appreciate an extra-terrestrial early warning device like this, we should not be finding them in our State Parks."

"Please always be safe when around suspicious objects like this and always notify the NJ State Park Police... if a suspicious object is found in our State Parks."

This was an old pile in the 1930s. I don't think its combustible at this point.

They stole my plans! Well, the secret to my Device is spray painting it gunmetal grey, not silver...Amateurs. Also you use a tuna can, not a soup can. (Patent Pending!)

Except that was a political stunt pulled by the kids parents to make a point about Islamophobia. No one, dark-skinned or not takes what resembles a bomb into a public place for a lark.

It was still an ordinary clock. The parents may have instigated it, but they we're proven right by the reaction, no? I saw it. It looked like a clock. Overreaction, was still overreacting, no? The point was made. If the parents instigated it, of which I'm not sure they did, Obama lauding the child indicated this wasn't so. Can you post a link verifying this? Thanks.

So how exactly did they know it was a "UFO detector"?
Comment icon #20 Posted by Golden Duck on 16 April, 2021, 7:04
Because it doesn't identify any of the flying objects it tracks.

Probably be more accurate if you missed off the last two words, lol!

I may have confused it with this, where it was a bomb and dad has been charged: Teen released from hospital after explosion at Michigan high school ( No, I defer to your judgement, especially if you saw it. Thanks for pointing this out. I shall have a quick look for what I remember reading, which indicated a massive course change to counter the Islamophobia which swept the West after  the spate of suicide bombings (ours was 7/7).
