Live WWII hand grenade causes stir at Rapid City pawn shop

Posted: Updated:
RAPID CITY -- A woman caused a stir at a Rapid City pawn shop when she brought in two items her husband had collected while serving in the Philippines during World War II.

The items were hand grenades - and one of them was still live.

Officials at Presidential Pawn on Tuesday alerted police, who called in the bomb squad from Ellsworth Air Force Base to dispose of the grenade.

Police say no charges will be filed because the woman was not aware she possessed an explosive.
