Four youths from Hamm, North-West Germany, uncovered a rifle dating back to World War 2 while taking a detour on their bikes through the Pilsholz neighbourhood.
The rifle was found in an old bomb crater, where its rusty part was protruding above the ground. One of the youths wanted to sell the non-functioning weapon on eBay but the other three informed the Police about the finds instead. The officers secured the weapon upon arrival and praised the boys for their actions.
