VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Workers at a Goodwill store in the Vancouver, Washington, suburb of Orchards have found a realistic-looking training grenade in a box of donated goods.

The Columbian reports (https://is.gd/TnNrQa ) that Clark County sheriff’s Deputy Steve Fox determined the grenade was an inert training device and not explosive. Sheriff’s officers said it would be destroyed.

Employees told deputies they were unpacking a shipment of donations on Monday that had arrived from another store when they found a grenade wrapped in a blanket.

Spokeswoman Dale Emanuel says Goodwill stores in the area encompassing southwest Washington plus northwest and central Oregon get many donations. And she adds, “With that comes things that aren’t always appropriate.”
