Goodwill employees are used to seeing clothing and other used items dropped off in their donation boxes.

But what someone put in the donation box at the store on South Broadway turned heads Thursday, police say: weapons, tactical gear and ordnance.

An employee at the store at 5025 S. Broadway found a sword, body armor, a black BB pistol, a 20,000-volt stun gun in its case, a black revolver holster, a corn knife, a belt with 9mm blank bullets, a yellow dagger, a belt with .308 caliber blanks and miscellaneous shotgun shells.

Police were alerted and they came and collected the items.
