Grenade Prompts Evacuation of Riverside Apartments

Police evacuated several Riverside apartments after relatives cleaning the home of a recently deceased resident of the building found a hand grenade among the person's belongings.

Riverside police say the family members were cleaning out the apartment Saturday when they found the grenade behind a piece of
furniture.

They took it outside and called police, who worked with sheriff's deputies to evacuate a number of nearby apartments.

The grenade was examined and found to be harmless.

Police say no investigation will take place because the grenade's owner, who was not identified, is deceased.
