The Department of Natural Resources was called to investigate the discovery of an unidentified object/device that washed ashore overnight at the beach in Spreckelsville off of Stable Road.

Authorities say the item appeared to be some type of Naval sonar equipment, but the DLNR Maui Boating District Manager is looking into the case to assess what it is and how to get it removed.

The item had barnacles attached, was rounded and cylindrical on one end, and tapered at the other end.  Witnesses tell us the object is 8′ to 10′ long and made out of aluminum with fiberglass wings. Further details are pending release as response and removal efforts are organized.
