Ohio residents discovered an explosive find in their home.
Deputies responded to a private home for reports of a live grenade on Tuesday evening. The explosive was found with its spoon duct-taped down. Authorities said the Wright-Patterson Bomb Squad detonated the device safely and reported no injuries.
It’s not the first time a grenade surfaced in the community near the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. A man cleaning out his dead uncle’s home found one there in 2016. Additionally, base authorities helped dispose of an unexploded mortar shell found nearby in 2018, Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) noted at the time.
The discovery comes two weeks after a utility crew in Arkansas found another grenade buried in a residential neighborhood in Conway.
