Dry Wall Installer Finds Grenade In Wall




LAPORTE, Ind. - A worker tearing out drywall found a hand grenade inside the wall of a home being remodeled in LaPorte.

Police Capt. Larry Sheets says the grenade appears to be live, but officers won't know for sure until it can be X-rayed.

Sheets says the grenade is an older style, but he isn't sure how old it is.

The home's owner called police Monday after a worker found the grenade. The street was blocked off nearby until the northwest Indiana city's bomb squad took possession of the device.

X-rayed? WTF, over? Just unscrew the friggin' head and remove the blasting tube. It ain't rocket science.

The dummy should have shut his mouth & put that in his pocket. You never know when you might need a grenade.
