The Knox County Bomb Squad responded to a home in Monroe County this week after a woman discovered a hand grenade inside a piece of antique pottery she purchased at a yard sale. Authorities confirmed it was an active Type 97 World War II Japanese hand grenade. Because of the age and deterioration of the grenade, a bomb squad robot was used to take it to a field across from the woman’s home where it was safely detonated in a hole.
