March 20 (UPI) -- A woman in Oak Creek, Wis. was spring cleaning when she found 4 live grenades among her late husband's things in the attic.

Caroline Cyganiak was cleaning a box of her late husband's war mementos when she found the grenades. She notified the police who called the close explosive ordinance disposal unit to remove the explosives. They were determined unstable and disposed of at a remote location.

“I’m sure it would have damaged that house extensively and probably injured anyone within a radius. That’s what they’re meant to do. They are weapons of war. They are meant to kill with fragments,” said Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards.

After the situation was resolved, Cyganiak said she went to the cemetery and reamed her husband out.
