More Than Just Memories, Footlocker Fuels Family Fear

Garden City, Kansas An old military footlocker can be a treasure trove of history and sentiment, but a Garden City family found a bit more than that while going through one in their home. To the shock of family, the locker held two old grenades. Kansas Highway bomb technicians and EOD from McConnell Air Force Base responded to the scene and nearby residents were evacuated.

EOD inspected the locker and ordered it be moved to the Finney County Road Department sand pits where a counter charge was placed, and the items in the footlocker were destroyed. It is unclear how long the grenades had been in the footlocker, but the family made a wise decision to notify authorities.
