ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Just in case it wasn't clear: Weapons and drugs don't make good charitable donations.

Albuquerque police briefly evacuated a Goodwill store Thursday after someone left a pistol, ammunition, a grenade and some marijuana in a collection box.

Police spokeswoman Nadine Hamby says the police bomb squad took the grenade away for demolition after determining tit was a World War II-style inert _ or inactive _ grenade.

The police report did not list what type of guns were in the box or the quantity of marijuana.
