City police were summoned Saturday afternoon to a residence in the 300 block of South Potomac Street whose occupants had found a grenade while hiking outside the city limits and brought to the home, according to Sgt. Jim Hurd of the Hagerstown Police Department.
Hurd said the call came in Saturday about 3:45 p.m., and police cordoned off that area of South Potomac Street for nearly an hour while a bomb squad from the state fire marshal's office came to check out the grenade.
But the grenade apparently wasn't a live one, Hurd said. The fire marshal's office was investigating.
