Per CBS:

Authorities say officers experienced a first when they recovered a suspected rocket-propelled grenade while executing a search warrant in a Minneapolis residence after a tip from a confidential informant.

Court documents show there was a search warrant executed last Thursday at an apartment on 29th Street and Fremont Avenue.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office says a fugitive and firearms investigation led to the discovery of the RPG, in addition to two handguns, one of which was modified with an extended magazine to make it fully automatic, and “a quantity of fentanyl powder.”

After further investigation, HCSO says the RPG-7 round was found to not be an active explosive.

Two men were arrested as a result of the search. Both the men have criminal records, including convictions for making terroristic threats among other crimes, court documents show.
