Woman from Orvault found weapons of her late husband, a former member of the resistanance and died last month …

Surprising discovery for this eighty year old resident of Orvault.  While she was cleaning his attic, this week, she discovered different weapons hidden under clothing,  in a closet, police said.  It was a Colt 45, ammunition and three grenades.

The arms of her late husband

This lady probably had found arms of her husband, who died last month, and had  been in the French Resistance in the Second World War.  The bomb squad must intervene to neutralize the grenades.  As for the gun, the lady wants to get it back so it will put out of action by a gunsmith, before being returned.
