Florida the rules are different here Chapter CLXX
A Central Florida strip mall was evacuated the other day. Why? An elderly woman came to a police substation with a hand grenade. Even though the pin was still inside it, law enforcement considered it dangerous. Don't you just love the Sunshine State?
An Orlando police substation near a Pine Hills strip mall was evacuated Thursday morning when an elderly woman arrived with an old grenade, reports show.
The woman was cleaning out the belongings of a deceased relative when she came across the live ammunition.
She put the device in her car and drove to the substation to get rid of it, police Sgt. Barbara Jones said.
Police contacted the Orlando Fire Department and the bomb squad. All nearby businesses, including the substation and strip mall, were evacuated.
