Three grenades were brought to the police station in Austria.

A resident of the Austrian city of Forchdorf in the Gmunden district personally brought three wartime grenades to the police station, explaining that after he found them in the forest, he could not sleep.

It is specified that a 35-year-old resident of Forchdorf arrived at the police station in his city on Friday night along with wartime grenades. Due to the fact that his finds were dangerous, law enforcement officers immediately cordoned off the territory. The man said that he found the grenades in the forest and first left them there.

“But since after that he could not sleep, he again went into the forest. He took the explosive find and personally brought it to the police,” the Austrian media noted, citing police data.


An examination carried out by explosives experts showed that the man brought ammunition intended for a grenade launcher, as well as an English hand grenade and a Hungarian-style grenade. The demining service took them out for safe disposal.
