Bomb Scare at locker cleanout !
« on: July 19, 2011, 09:59:01 PM »
Starting cleaning out a unit I bought today and took a break to walk around to another buyer's lkr.

He showed me (on the ground) a HAND GRENADE he had found in the lkr. Didn't have my camera or I would have taken a pic. The grenade was olive green, looked like a pineapple about 5" long. The plug in the bottom didn't look original but top looked real AND the pin was not in the mechanism.  He had already called the cops.

They arrived about 15" later and after looking at it they called the bomb squad and we all had to leave the premises !

Probably inert, but they weren't taking any chances.   ???

damn, bet he was surprised to find that. Although I would be wondering if I did not pull the pin, and it has not exploded, what gives?

Wow. Now that is one locker whenever I finally get one that I wouldn't mind losing on. Having my bodily limbs all in tact is a winner, winner. Chicken dinner.

Sure there has been a few units everyone wish they could have taken a grenade to.

Went back yesterday to finish cleaning out my unit around the corner from the "bomb" unit.

The property mgr came out and said that when the bomb squad arrived they decided they needed the "robot" to pick up the grenade.

45 minutes later the robot arrived from another city. When it got there they decided one of the humans could just drop it in the padded tank to take it out somewhere to blow it up.

I guess they want to take every precaution in a case like this, but it sure tied up some time and the prop mgr was ticked she was locked outside her facility from 6 pm to  8:30 pm ! Glad I was just getting ready to leave when the first cop showed up.
