Pair of WWII-era hand grenades turned into Vernon RCMP

A member of the public walked into the Vernon RCMP detachment with a pair of Second World War era hand grenades Wednesday.

The individual found two hand grenades while cleaning out a garage and brought them to the RCMP for disposal at around 11 a.m., April 10, according to an RCMP press release.

Police consulted with the Explosives Disposal Unit and placed the grenades in a police vehicle and established a safety corridor around the vehicle until the disposal team arrived.

Explosive disposal officers arrived at 6:30 p.m. and safely removed the grenades.

RCMP want to remind the public not to touch anything that could be explosive or dangerous, the best course of action is to call police and let them handle it where it was found.
