Last Friday, a citizen who lives out in the county reportedly found a live M60 grenade at her home. She brought it into town and showed it to police, Chief Milton Willmann stated.

Officers removed the woman to an isolated area for safety and contacted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.  ATF agents spoke with a landowner across the highway from Sonic and transported the grenade to that area.  Several occupants at the Blanco Seniors Apartments were relocated to apartments away from the highway, based on ATF protocol.

ATF agents then rendered the grenade safe. It was live, the Chief reported.
