A man at Another Closet Self Storage found what he thought was a live grenade in his father’s storage unit Monday in Mission, Texas.
The man, whose father had recently died, was cleaning the unit when he came across the device. The police bomb squad was called in and discovered the device was an actual grenade, but only the shell. It was missing primer powder or explosives. The tenant was an antique collector.
A bomb squad spokesperson said the empty grenade could be found at any military surplus store and didn’t pose a threat.
