Boy, 7, playing 'treasure hunt' in backyard finds grenade

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A young boy’s treasure hunt led to a startling discovery in Perkasie, Pennsylvania, over the weekend; a grenade in his backyard. 

Jamie Hunt said her 7-year-old son was playing “treasure hunt” with a friend in their backyard along the 500 block of Middle Road around noon on Sunday. As they were playing, the children discovered a box labeled "840 cartridges, 5.56 mm" under tree branches.

The children initially believed the “5.56 mm” meant the box contained $5 million. When they opened it however, they found a grenade, mortar tips and fuses inside. They then alerted their parents who called Hilltown Township Police.

The hoarders sound like they could be suspects for having put the box there. Good thing the grenade was empty!
