A live military hand grenade found under a bed in a Para Hills home, in Adelaide had to be deactivated by the Australian Defence Force, a court has heard.
The occupants and live-in couple of more than three years, Christopher John Radomanski, 34, and Bianca Despine Anne Mouhalos, 31, appeared in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court by video link on Wednesday charged with taking steps in manufacturing an explosive.
They were also charged with two counts of dishonestly receiving, and one count of dishonestly dealing, with property without consent.
A third person arrested at the property, Crystal Simone Agius, 34, also appeared and is facing two counts of dishonestly receiving, and one count of dishonestly dealing, with property without consent and failing to answer questions or identify the driver or owner of a vehicle.
On Wednesday, police prosecutor Brevet Sergeant Jennifer Switala said the grenade, a “very dangerous device”, was “capable of causing death or serious harm”.
Magistrate Terence Forrest granted both women bail but Radomanski did not apply for early release.
All three will next appear in Adelaide’s Elizabeth Magistrates Court in April.
