Fake Grenade Found In Md. Apartment, Man Charged

CASCADE, Md. (AP) — Maryland state fire investigators say a Washington County man has been charged after a fake hand grenade was found in his apartment.

The Maryland state fire marshal’s office says Philip Charles Taylor, 58, was charged Tuesday with manufacture of a phony destructive device and possession of a phony destructive device.

Officials say a county sheriff’s deputy and the owner of the apartment on MacAfee Hill Road found the object while serving an eviction notice.

Bomb technicians and state investigators were called to the scene and determined the object was a non-explosive device.

The fire marshal’s office says Taylor was later arrested in the 13000-block of Ritchie Road.

  4. Ronnie Adams says:

    They sell fake hand gernades as paperweights. What a ridiculous waste of time, money and energy. Now this por guy who is already evicted must to court to fight bogus charges. It would have been different lets say if he was threatening people with the fake gernade…

    Sunny’s Surplus used to sell old grenades with the bottoms drilled out – loved them as a kid.

    Scary that this is a crime…

    Keep electing liberal democrats and we’ll be living in a “police state”. Anything they want will become a crime and only law abiding citizens will be effected. Where is the crime in owning a fake grenade? The liberals want a complete gun ban and sooner or later they will get it. So keep voting them in office and don’t complain when only illegals have rights.

    They weren’t grenades but petrified clumps of Coon turds.
