Northrop Grumman ships secret cargo through LA-area marina
REDONDO BEACH, California (AP)―Defense contractor Northrop Grumman reportedly moved secret cargo through a Southern California marina, Oct. 18-20.
The Daily Breeze reported part of King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach was shut down from 5 p.m. Oct. 18 to 5 p.m. Oct. 20 for the move of what was described as a U.S. Navy demonstration project.
The large object was taken from a Northrop Grumman facility in Redondo Beach to a barge for shipment to San Diego.
The newspaper said that during a Redondo Beach City Council meeting the previous week, Northrop Grumman officials cited national security concerns in declining to provide information about the object.
The company agreed on Oct. 15 to pay the city $25,000 for a licensing agreement to use the marina and for any costs the city incurs.
