Four Hand Grenades

In March 2014, police were called to detonate four live hand grenades found in the attic of an Oak Creek, Wisconsin home. Carolyn Cyganiak found the 42-year-old weapons stashed in a bin in her home. The family believes that her husband had put the grenades away years earlier during the Cold War. Carolyn Cyganiak was going through her late husband’s old Army uniforms when she came across the grenades. She had a real scare, but luckily the Milwaukee bomb squad was able to detonate the grenades before anyone was hurt.
