Explosive Donation

"They get all kinds of stuff here," said police Capt. John Loftus. "Sometimes we get military objects, a lot of times dating back to World War II. A lot of times family members don't even know what they're donating." Police closed off a block of the Mission District yesterday after the Salvation Army received a potentially explosive object that strongly resembled a cannonball. Police closed off 26th Street between Valencia and Guerrero streets while they carefully removed the object. [SF Gate]
