In Incline Village, a family discovered several canister explosives on their property in a wooded area.
The Washoe County Bomb Squad was called in and they located six canisters that were the size of a spray paint can. Police say the cans are probably explosives used in avalanche control.
The Washoe County Bomb Squad also removed a 22-inch Rocket Propelled Grenade from an apartment complex in Sparks. A maintenance worker at Park Vista Apartments in Sparks found the grenade near a garbage container.
The bomb unit has the grenade and are working to determine if it is live.
