The Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) desperately asks the public for help to locate a grenade purchased at a Brunswick County thrift store in June of 2020 and could be harmful to the new owner.
The grenade was sold at the Fancy Flea Antique Mall, located at 2773 Ocean Highway West near Shallotte, on June 13.
The World War II MK2 style grenade was believed to be inert at the time of sale.
Information provided to ATF indicates the grenade may still contain materials that could degrade and explode or explode by impact, a press release read.
