    Man finds live mortar shell in grandpa's things

    GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado man sorting through his late grandfather's belongings found a bombshell, sort of: A live mortar round from the Korean War era. A bomb squad detonated the shell at an undisclosed site. No one was hurt. Police said Monday the grandson discovered the shell in a firearms cabinet at his grandfather's home just outside Greeley on Friday.

    Police Sgt. Joe Tymkowych said the grandfather was in the military during the Korean War but police don't know how he came to have the shell.

    Tymkowych says the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is investigating.

    Neither the grandfather's nor the grandson's name has been released.

    The BATFE has since shot the grandfathers dog and dug up his body to try him on felony weapons counts.

    I knew a guy who had this sort of shit laying around his house.

    He's eventually selling most of it off because his kids have no interest in it.

    This was the kinda guy that carried around a live 88 round in his M1928 pack for 2 weeks after he landed on D-Day. He went to war just to collect shit as he says.

    If your family member has a live mortar laying around and you don't want it for yourself it is likely because the mortar was being used as a paperweight for your adoption papers.
