SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The San Diego Police Department is warning residents to be careful what they donate after someone reportedly brought in a grenade to a local charity, the department said.

“One of our local charities found this as they were sorting donations,” the department said, referring to the grenade.

Police said the device was only a training grenade, but that officers “took every precaution as if it was real.”

“It may be the season of giving but please DO NOT include this as a part of your donation,” the department added.
