Police say they found two boxes of grenades inside a Brooklyn home Monday morning.
Police found 10 grenades inside the home. While those grenades were not live, the news shook up the neighborhood. Eva Sanabria has lived on 48th Street between Third and Fourth for more than 60 years and says she knew the family who lived here.
"The owner of the house Louie - he passed a long time ago. The wife just passed a couple of years ago. The nieces or something were cleaning the house out, and they happened to go down to the basement and find all the grenades and stuff down there," says Sanabria.
Police shut down the area and called in the bomb squad to investigate the inert training grenades. As for why those grenades were there, Sanabria says the man who lived there had served in the military.
"He was in World War II, so he probably brought them and kept them, and everybody forgot about it," Sanabria said.
