A lightning strike that sent a garage up in flames revealed much more than scorched debris. It happened in rural Bartholomew County off of county road North 500 West. There they found live hand grenades and ammunition.
The State Fire Marshal's office has also been in contact with the Department of Army to help figure out where the hand grenades are from and who they belong to.
We recently monitored a gun show where enough parts can be purchased to assemble the M-16 automatic rifle and Colt M 1911 45 caliber semiautomatic pistol, as well as bombs and booby traps. Many of these parts are still packaged in military crates, original Cosmoline packaging, and available in unbelievable quantities. Virtually truck loads of parts are readily available for purchase. Training ammunition is sometimes unavailable to train troops, but can be purchased by civilians in any amount. Case upon case of this clearly marked military ammunition sits stacked on the floor, available to cash customers.
