Hand grenade otis
MK 2A1 grenade from WWII

A World War II hand grenade was found by an Otis woman Friday in the garage of her late father’s house, still in its original container.

The woman called the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office around 4:30 p.m. Friday to report the find after she and her husband were going through old boxes belonging to her deceased father.

Deputies arrived and evaluated the device and confirmed it was an original MK 2A1 fragmentation grenade from WWII. Deputies said the grenade was fully intact and appeared to be packaged in its original container.

The Oregon State Police Bomb Squad was called and they secured the grenade and took it for an investigation to determine if the grenade was still capable of exploding.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office thanked the Oregon State Police Bomb Squad for their assistance.
