Po­lice: Grenade dis­cov­ery is non-crim­i­nal

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - LOCAL NEWS -

NORTH COVENTRY >> Po­lice have clas­si­fied an in­ci­dent Wed­nes­day in­volv­ing the dis­cov­ery of hands grenades as non-crim­i­nal.

Ac­cord­ing to a post on North Coventry Po­lice’s web­site, of­fi­cers were called to a home on the 200 block of South Hanover Street at ap­prox­i­mately 4:26 p.m. for the re­port of sus­pi­cious items lo­cated in­side. Ear­lier re­ports in­di­cated that mem­bers of the Mont­gomery County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Bomb and Haz­ardous De­vice Unit were called to the home to re­move two hand grenades found in the base­ment.

Po­lice elab­o­rated in their post later that day, stat­ing that of­fi­cers were ad­vised that the home had just been pur­chased and the new owner had found a small room off the base­ment that con­tained items that con­cerned the home­owner. Once in­side the room, of­fi­cers ob­served two grenades and drug para­pher­na­lia. The res­i­dence was evac­u­ated and the Mont­gomery County Sher­iffs Bomb Dis­posal Unit was then called to in­ves­ti­gate.

The bomb unit was able to con­firm that the grenades were no longer live, and the team re­moved them from the home.

Home­own­ers were al­lowed back into their home with­out in­ci­dent af­ter more than an hour.
