Bit of Excitement Today – Possible Grenade Found Near Where I Was at Today – August 14, 2019

For what it’s worth, situations like this could have turned out much worse. It’s a good reminder that we are not guaranteed tomorrow.

Thought it was simply a robbery at first of the check-cashing place nearby when the police and a local TV station showed up. It took a while before the store manager was informed there was a bomb, correction a possible grenade. The police didn’t think it was big enough to damage where I was eating. Eventually the bomb squad showed up and took care of the problem. From reports, the grenade was put in the bomb disposal unit and carried to a safe place to make it go boom. Out of the local TV stations, only Channel 12 KWCH, showed up. Not seeing anything on their website or Facebook page as of shortly before this post went live. They later added a clip on the story –


There are several exterior cameras on the outside of this strip mall which could help reveal the possible identity of the person who planted it. Although it sounds like it was left in a car that needed repairing.

    • The initial report was a bomb, but they weren’t evacuating us so figured it wasn’t too big. From the description of initial location, it was near the opposite corner to my favorite eating place.

      This place has its moments. While I was at church last night, it was robbed. The last time it was robbed when I was here was a few years back.
