FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla.  — The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad was called to Flagler County on Monday morning to dispose of a hand grenade that had been bought at an estate sale, deputies said.

Deputies said a woman on San Pablo Court in the Hammock Beach area told them she had purchased the grenade thinking it was a novelty cigarette lighter.

She contacted the Sheriff’s Office just before 11 a.m., when she determined that it might actually be a grenade, deputies said.

Deputies said the firing pin had been pulled out of the grenade and apparently replaced. The bomb squad disposed of the grenade about 1 p.m. in an isolated area.
