Live grenade found in farm field

Dodge County authorities say a live hand grenade found in a farm field has been destroyed.

The Fremont Tribune reports that a man was working Wednesday night in the field on the eastern edge of Dodge County when he found a post in the field.

When he tried to move the post he saw the grenade. Sheriff Steve Hespen says the Nebraska State Patrol's bomb squad was sent to the field. Squad members determined that it was a live grenade and destroyed it, using plastic explosives.
