Fukuoka offers cash rewards for hand grenades
Fukuoka Prefecture has become the first prefecture to offer monetary rewards to anyone who reports finding a hand grenade.
According to new rules set down by the prefectural government, anyone volunteering information that leads to the seizure of hand grenades or the arrest of the owner stands to receive a 100,000 yen reward for each grenade, Fuji TV reported.
The move comes after five criminal cases involving hand grenades were reported in the prefecture last year. According to police, some residents also reported finding hand grenades, and one was seized from a car in Kitakyushu.
