A man cleaning out his deceased brother’s apartment had a bit of a surprise when he found a hand grenade among his possessions. The grenade was inside a container, the brother did not want to move it so he immediately called 911. Officials called in State Police who are better equipped in explosives. Often times grenades that are found in veteran’s possessions are training devices with no explosives inside but it is best to err on the side of caution. A neighbor told me the man recently moved into the complex before passing. Trefoil Court is subsidized housing owned by the town of Fairfield and has has 30 total units and 30 assisted units for the elderly and disabled. We will let you know the outcome of the State Police’s investigation as soon as it becomes available.
