MIDVALE, Utah -- (KSTU) -- About $800,000 worth of drugs and a couple of live grenades are off the streets after a bust in Midvale.
Unified Police, the metro gang unit and the Utah County Major Crimes Taskforce seized 23.5 pounds of methamphetamine, 5.5 pounds of heroin, a stolen handgun (stolen from Spokane, Washington,) and two live grenades.
"In my 16 years of experience, and I have worked in several different units, I've heard a lot of talk in the underworld of grenades but never actually seen one that was a live grenade that was functional," Unified Police Lt. Lex Bell said. "These two were in fact functional."
