UPDATED: Grenade Removed From Home, Evacuees Allowed Back

Arson/Explosives experts called on scene to examine the grenade, police said.

UPDATE, 3:35 p.m.: Arcadia Police called the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department's explosives detail to ensure the grenade was, indeed, inactive.

Residents evacuated from about five neighboring houses were allowed to return home  around 2:22 p.m. Arcadia Police first received the call to remove the grenade at 12:06 p.m.

The Sheriff's Department now has custody of the explosive.

PREVIOUSLY: Arcadia Police officers are on their way to remove a grenade from a home on East Winnie.

While authorities say they believe the grenade is dead, they are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of the home's residents and surrounding neighbors. Police have evacuated families in homes directly adjacent to the one housing the grenade.

The resident who owns the grenade had called authorities to remove it because he didn't want it anymore, Lt. Bob Anderson said. Scanner reports indicated that as of 1:03 p.m., police had already entered the home to collect the grenade.

This story will continue to be updated as information becomes available.

It is not unlawful to own a dud/practice granade. Army surplus stores have tons of them for sale. If the owner knows for sure that this was a dud, should have just thrown it away into trash instead of calling the PD to get rid of it.
