Man Finds Grenade In Backyard

A Rocky Mount man got more than he bargained for when he was cleaning his yard Thursday afternoon.

Police say he found a rusty hand grenade lying near a pine tree in the backyard of 1020 Hill Street. The man picked it up and could not determine if it was real or fake.

An SBI bomb squad was called in and removed the grenade from the area. So far there's no word whether the grenade was real or fake.
