SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police have removed five grenades from a garage in the city’s Potrero District that were discovered by the family of a recently deceased 92-year-old man.
Police say the family was cleaning out the man’s home and garage when they discovered the World War II-era grenades in a paper bag around 7:15 a.m. Thursday. It’s not clear why the grenades were there.
The bomb squad was called in and used two robots to remove them. Streets in the area were closed and some businesses evacuated.
The removal was completed around 9 a.m.
