Bomb Squad Responds to Remove Goodwill Grenade
Round Lake Beach, Illinois Police were called to a Goodwill store after an employee found a hand grenade while going through donations at the store. The store was evacuated, and the Waukegan Bomb Squad was called in to x-ray the device for explosives.
According to police, the grenade had been hollowed out but plugged, so they were not sure if it was live initially. The bomb squad did deem it inert and safely removed the device. Police Chief Wayne Wilde urged anyone who needs to discard old munitions to contact police, not take them to Goodwill.
