Good Will Hunting? Grenade launcher donated to Florida charity store
On Sunday, deputies from Manatee County Sheriff’s Office were called to the Goodwill Manasota Bargain Barn, after employees discovered a grenade launcher with a grenade inside it, according to the Bradenton Herald.
The store manager told deputies that the grenade launcher had arrived in a shipment from another local store. According to the Goodwill manager, employees at the Bradenton location didn’t know what the donated item was, so they sent it to the Bargain Barn location.
A Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said they disposed of the active grenade by placing the item in a Hazmat locker.
The original owner of the grenade launcher is unknown.
