Police Detonate Grenade

8/17/2008 Orange Cove, CA, USA Deputies set a 300-foot perimeter around the apartment complex at South and Rodriguez and two bomb techs were called in.

Deputies say someone found the grenade in a canal and then took it inside the apartment.

It was eventually moved outside into a backyard area, and that's where the bomb squad destroyed the device after placing it in a hole dug into the ground.

The bomb squad had another grenade scare just five days ago. A widow found a "World War II" hand grenade when she was sorting through her late husband's belongings. It turned out the explosive materials had already been removed.
