Live grenade found at Roseburg Salvation Army store; bomb squad called
ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — The Salvation Army says an employee at the Roseburg store who was sorting donations found a live grenade at the bottom of a box.

The Roseburg News-Review reports ( the State Police bomb squad took the grenade and dealt with it Monday. The police don’t describe how such devices are disabled.

Chris Freysinger, administrative captain for the organisation, said there’s no way to tell who left the box nor how long it was in the store, but she’s sure it was “just an innocent donation.”

She said it was a small box with a lot of what she called “guy stuff.”
