Driver arrested with grenade, meth

The driver in the carpool lane didn’t have a passenger, but Federal Way police say he was carrying some odd cargo — some meth and a hand grenade.

Around 4 p.m. Tuesday, an officer spotted a pickup headed down an Interstate 5 high-occupancy vehicle onramp near the South 317th Street.

The officer stopped the truck and discovered that its driver — described as a man in his 30s — had a suspended license, police spokeswoman Stacy Flores said. When the officer asked to search the car, Flores said, the man admitted that he had a pineapple-style grenade with him.
