Live Rifle Grenades Found On FDL Property

It was a busy July 4th weekend, with City of Fond du Lac PD responding to over 3 dozen complaint calls of people setting off illegal fireworks throughout Fond du Lac.

But nothing compared to the call officers received Monday afternoon, just after 1:00 p.m., where a female caller stated she had found what appeared to be 3 live grenades on her mom’s property.

Officers arrived in the 600 block of S. Military Rd., where it was confirmed the grenades appeared to be live rifle grenades. Wisconsin Emergency Management as well as Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue were all notified, and officials are coordinating their efforts for proper disposal of the explosives.
