A BANG-UP JOB
One donation to the Florida Salvation Army turned out to be a real dud and the charity is relieved about that fact.
Volunteers emptied out a donation bin in West Palm Beach on Tuesday and found a hand grenade, prompting a call to police. Emergency responders arrived and closed the store where the bin was located, warning employees to steer clear.
According to a police report, the device was "rendered safe" about two hours later and customers were once again free to shop for slightly used skivvies.

GRAND THEFT BODY?
An Australian man who robbed a cop while butt naked pled not guilty and pinned the blame on someone else - the stranger who was possessing his body at the time.
Paul Thompson allegedly threatened an off-duty police officer with a knife and stole his bag at a shopping mall before trying to swim to freedom. Officers in a police boat apprehended Thompson and brought him ashore after subduing him with pepper spray.
When arraigned the next day, he said he should be set free because someone else had decided to joy ride in his body and was programming him to do things against his will. He's currently on psychiatric hold.

NOW THAT'S A PANTY RAID!
A very specialized thief in Thailand got his panties in a bunch after he was nabbed by cops -- who found more than a thousand pairs of women's underwear in the trunk of his car.
The man was spotted breaking into an apartment in Bangkok, and when police followed him to his car, they found the disturbing assortment of thongs, bikinis and granny panties. When pressed by the deputies, he admitted those were just the tip of the iceberg and led them to his home, where another 10,000 pairs were waiting.
The 48-year-old bikini bandit said he'd been stealing undies for more than 30 years and that "he smelled them all the time, even while driving."
