    A box containing donated items that was dropped off Thursday at a Goodwill Industries store in West Allis also included a hand grenade and a smoke canister, police said.

    West Allis police received a call shortly after 2:30 p.m. reporting the discovery of the devices, Lt. Brian Mason said.

    According to Mason, police officers, West Allis firefighters and members of the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad responded to the store, 11000 W. Oklahoma Ave., and the building was evacuated.

    The devices, which were treated as live, were taken to a field behind the police department in the 11300 block of W. Lincoln Ave., where they were detonated about 6:15 p.m., Mason said.

    The incident remained under investigation Thursday night.
