How Many Cops Can You Get To A Cache? in Canada Posted April 11, 2008 · Edited April 11, 2008 by 2happy2gether I agree if in doubt, call... In this day of stupidity, who know who will put what inside any kind of package to hurt someone. Although anyone with experience tossing grenades would know we do not use anything like that, not have I seen anything similar - kinda like the old US "pineapple" Cool story though.... Maybe we should have a category for strange finds, grenade - check To be honest the grenade looks very similar to one used by the US for riot control. A good rule of thumb for stuff like this is to note its location, walk away, phone the police, give them a point of contact and brief them when they arrive. Do not approach the item again until such time as the EOD guys ask you to accompany them to the item. The police will call in the miltary for recovery if it is in fact ammunition. There are plenty of legacy items like this still circulating around, some are still live. This stuff has been designed for one purpose; to maim or kill. If you don't know what it is and it functions as deisgned guess what!!! For safety sake, and from a professional standpoint, leave well enough alone if you happen to find anything like this, please. Don't assume it's not real. Oh yeah, take what I say as gospel; I sneak up on grenades for a living.
