RCMP in Grand Rapids, Man., found something unusual on the riverbank behind the local school on Sunday: a modified grenade.
Officers arrived on scene immediately after a report of the device around 12 p.m., and called in the RCMP’s explosive disposal unit (EDU) for help.
Police said the EDU determined it was a modified pineapple grenade with the pin removed, and wasn’t at risk of exploding. It was disposed of safely after the EDU countercharged the grenade and destroyed it.
The grenade had apparently washed up on shore, so police have no information as of Wednesday as to where it originally came from.
