    Woman, 94, brings late husband's grenades, aircraft bombs to police

    ST. THOMAS, Ontario. - The military was called in after an elderly woman showed up at an Ontario police station to turn in grenades, a tank round and even aircraft bombs dating back to the Second World War.

    Police in St. Thomas, south of London, say the 94-year-old woman walked into their front lobby Tuesday carrying her late husband's collection of military munitions.

    An expert from the Department of National Defence was brought in and determined that none of the ammunition was live.

    Police say some of the items were donated to the Elgin Military Museum, while one was destroyed by the military as a precaution.

    They say anyone looking to get rid of military munitions should call police to come to their home - and not carry the potentially explosive items to their local police station.
