It was an explosive find.
“Duct tape does not fix everything,” the Darke County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post that included an image of the grenade with its spoon taped down.
Authorities said the Wright-Patterson Bomb Squad detonated the device safely and reported no injuries.
“We ask the public if an explosive device is located, please call the Sheriff’s Office immediately,” authorities said in a statement. “Always remember any explosive device can become unstable even by picking it up.”
