Possible Grenade located on Peavy Road

March 20, 2018, at approximately 5:20 p.m., a citizen arrived at their residence in the 600 block of Peavy Road and spotted what was believed to be a grenade.  The device was in the street near the curb.  The citizen called for police and when the officers arrived, they confirmed that the device appeared to be an actual grenade.  The Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Unit was notified.

When the EOD Unit arrived the device was analyzed and it could not be determined if it was a live grenade.  Using the bomb robot, the EOD Unit removed the device from the street and transported it to a nearby field and a protective bunker was constructed. The device was placed in the bunker and it was rendered inert.  The device will be collected for analysis.  This incident will be documented on Case # 059075-2018.
