According to Port Washington Police, the woman explained she and her husband were cleaning out their garage while preparing for a move and found the grenade and put into a white plastic bag. She then drove the grenade to the police department around 4:00 p.m. Monday so police could dispose of it.

Police made sure the grenade was a safe distance away from the building and restricted people from the area. The Milwaukee Police Department Bomb Squad responded around 5:35 p.m. and determined the grenade was a training grenade and presented no danger.
