German World War One Grenade Found In Goldsboro

A live World War One German hand grenade was found Wednesday in the drawer of an antique sewing machine.

The Explosive Ordinance Unit from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base ended up neutralizing the circa 1917 hand grenade that was found in a home on West Hill Street in Goldsboro.

Wayne County deputies say David and Susan Crooks were restoring the antique sewing machine when they found the live grenade in a drawer. David Crooks said that sewing machine, with the grenade likely inside, made the rounds with family members for several years in Florida and South Carolina.
