WWII Grenades in Lakeview

Was it from a collection? Leftovers? Secret arsenal?

Several building in the Lakeview neighborhood were evacuated yesterday after bomb and arson investigators found three live grenades in one of the buildings, police said.

Officials had called for a hazardous materials response to the 900 block of West Newport Avenue after investigators found the World War II-era grenades in the basement of a building there, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety.
