A woman bringing in a hand grenade and two mortar shells to the Belmont Police Department caused the parking lot where she parked her car to be closed off for about an hour Wednesday afternoon, according to police.
At approximately 2:25 p.m., the woman brought the souvenirs from her father’s service because she wanted to dispose of them. Technicians from the county’s bomb squad responded and took possession of the items. Technicians believed the items were likely inert. Police remind those coming across such items to not move them, but rather have police respond to assess and deal with them.
