WAYNE, NEW JERSEY — Police officers and members of the county bomb squad were called Monday after a man drove to police headquarters with a hand grenade in the trunk of his vehicle, authorities said.

Anthony G. Attrino at NJ.com reports that the man, who was not identified by police, arrived at the records bureau window and told them he found a grenade, according to police Capt. Laurence W. Martin.

The man said “he was cleaning out his basement over the weekend and discovered what is described as a Japanese-style WWII hand grenade,” Martin said. “The hand grenade was in the trunk of his vehicle.”

Wayne police notified the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad, whose members arrived moments later.

A shelter-in-place order was issued for nearby Wayne Valley High School about 9:25 a.m. and lifted about 10:09 a.m., Martin said.
