On Monday, an 89-year-old lady walked into Maplewood's City Hall. She'd found something that belonged to her husband, and brought it in because she didn't know what to do with it.

Yeah, it was a HAND GRENADE (possibly from WWII). This little treasure freaked some people out.

Maplewood City Hall was evacuated, and the bomb squad had to come deal with it.
