Bomb Squad Called After Grenade Donation To Grand Rapids Home For Veterans
Things to not donate, live practice grenades and artillery simulators.
The bomb squad was called to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans yesterday after four practice grenades were discovered in a box of donations. An artillery simulator was also discovered with donations that were left in a drop box.
If set off, the training grenades would have just smoked, but the artillery simulator could have caused a loud noise and blown out windows.
Staff of the donation center say these items were probably part of a larger collection of a veteran's war memorabilia.
The bomb squad removed the items without incident.
