GLENWOOD, W.Va. (AP) — A Mercer County man made an unexpected find while hunting for mushrooms.

State police Trooper B.R. Wood tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph ( ) that the man found a World War II-era pineapple grenade on Wednesday evening.

Wood says the Mercer County Special Response Team disposed of the grenade by blowing it in place.

He says a lot of World War II soldiers brought grenades home as souvenirs. Most were duds or had the charges removed.
