According to USA Today sister newspaper TC Palm, the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office bomb squad rushed to a Goodwill store in Port St. Lucie late Wednesday afternoon after a grenade was discovered in a donation bin. This is the second time this year that this has occurred.

Officers cleared the store for 90 minutes, while a bomb squad technician determined that the grenade was inert.

Goodwill does not accept any weapons at its thrift stores, but employees are trained on how to notify authorities in the presence of such donations.
