    Man finds grenade in newly purchased home

    Sep 10, 2007 01:53 PM


    BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - South Carolina police are examining what they think is a live hand grenade from World War II, reported WTOC News in Savannah, Georgia.

    A Bluffton man called police this weekend when he found a pin-and-pineapple design hand grenade, like the one pictured here, while cleaning out a shed behind the house he just bought.

    The Beaufort County Sheriff's Tactical Operations Unit and an ordinance disposal officer from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division said the device has a fuse and appeared to be live.

    The home's previous owner said her stepfather was in World War II and the grenade could have been his.

    Hope I find something cool when I buy a house.

    I've heard of people finding FA stuff when they buy a house.
