    Grenade triggers Goodwill evacuation

    AKRON - Nearly 50 people inside the Goodwill Service Center on East Waterloo Road had to be evacuated Wednesday afternoon after a live grenade was found among donated items. Nan McClenaghan, president of Goodwill Industries in Akron, said the suspicious item was found around 1 p.m. while donations were being sorted. The Akron Fire Department was called and the building was evacuated around 1:15 p.m., McClenaghan said. The Summit County Sheriff's Office's bomb squad removed the device from the building. Sheriff's Deputy Bob Hambel said the grenade did not appear to have a firing device, but it had the appearance and heft of a grenade from either China or Russia. The bomb squad took the grenade and stored it in a bunker at its training center in Green. Hambel said it was unknown who brought the grenade to Goodwill. McClenaghan said it is uncommon to find a dangerous item during the sorting process.
