Goodwill donation includes three hand grenades

March 22, 2016

Franklin —Three hand grenades were discovered in a donation at Goodwill Industries in Franklin on March 19 according to a news release.

Goodwill, 6941 S. Riverwood Blvd., was evacuated as a precaution after employees discovered the grenades.

The Milwaukee Police Department Hazardous Devices Unit came to the scene to assist and determined all three grenades were inoperable and posed no danger. Goodwill was then returned to normal operation.

The Franklin Police Department determined there was "nothing suspicious nor does it appear that there was any intent to cause harm or injury," the release states.

A similar incident occurred in Waukesha County in 2014 when workers at the Menomonee Falls Goodwill store found a grenade-like device.
