Arcadia, FL – DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Donald Reid Jr. for multiple counts of possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon. Among the firearms confiscated at the time of the arrest were a pistol, a rifle, and most notably an M67 grenade. The grenade had the pin in its place but was considered to be live.
Reid was stopped by a traffic patrolman and during the traffic stop told narcotics officers that he had a live grenade in the vehicle. The convicted felon is still in custody. The grenade was disarmed by a neighboring county’s bomb squad after they were called in for assistance. Photos from the arrest posted by the Sheriff’s Department Facebook page are below.
