While most donations are gladly accepted at Goodwill Industries, grenades are not.

Even inert grenades, such as the one left this week at a Goodwill store in Goddard.

The inert grenade – minus any ability to explode – was found Thursday evening among other items donated by an unknown person, Goddard Police Chief Sam Houston said Friday.

Store officials called police.

“It’s like one of of those inert grenades you can buy at gun shows,” Houston said. “It’s good to donate things, but make sure you don’t donate those kind of things.”
