Police Worried By What Was Found In Fast Food Parking Lot

Possible fatalities were prevented when an active military-grade hand grenade was discovered Saturday afternoon in the parking lot outside a Maryland McDonald's. A bomb technician, with the Office of the State Marshal, secured and removed the active grenade. Bomb technician, Dale Ednock, said that the grenade found lodged about a foot under the pavement was there for quite some time. Ednock said it was likely a relic of the military base located in Thurmont, about 65 miles northwest of Baltimore, several decades ago.

He added that if the grenade had gone off, anyone in the vicinity could have suffered severe injuries or death. It was found by a landscaping crew at around 1 p.m. Customers and employees were evacuated, and roads in all directions were shut down.
