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.
