A grenade was removed from a Norton home by Norton Fire Department and the State Police bomb squad Friday morning.
A resident at 160 E. Main St. called Norton Fire Department at about 10:49 a.m. after finding a grenade in his garage. Upon arrival at the scene, the department called the State Police bomb squad, who x-rayed the device and determined it to be inactive. Inactive grenades are not considered dangerous.
“It couldn’t explode if you wanted it to,” said Norton Fire Captain Kent Campbell.
Fire and State Police officials cleared the scene at 11:31 a.m.
