SUN CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Maricopa County employee stumbled upon a live grenade under a pile of clothes while cleaning a dead man’s home near Surprise.

KPHO-TV in Phoenix reports (https://goo.gl/b0HLdp) a public fiduciary found the live grenade on Saturday and immediately contacted Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies.

Dan Livingston, who lived near the late homeowner, says the elderly man had a gun collection but he never imagined the man owned a grenade. He thinks the man probably forgot about it.

Members of a bomb squad safely removed the grenade from the home.
