The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office recovered a live hand grenade yesterday (05-19-10) in the 1400 block of Tulsa Road in rural Pulaski County.

Sheriff J. B. King says that when deputies arrived they were told that the resident of the home had recently died and when the estate of the person was being inventoried a live grenade was discovered in a storage box. King says it appeared to have been stored in that box for a very long time.

Deputies secured the grenade and turned it over to an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit of the United States Army at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, for destruction
