March 8, 2019 (Spring Valley) – Sheriff’s deputies received a call this morning from a resident on Margaret Court, Spring Valley who said his 93-year-old neighbor had given him a grenade.

 

Detectives responded and it was determined that the device was an inert Korean War era grenade. It was removed from the area for proper disposal, says detective John Debus.

"inert?"

Does the Sheriff mean 'inert' or defused? Lots of people have acquired over the years, those devices that were made harmless for mantle pieces. If he/she meant defused, this would not be news to most anyone.
