Hitchin, England Police officers were called to the Chevronic Centre in Hitchin after the owner found a suspected WWII grenade. The area was evacuated while the grenade was inspected by EOD.
The owner, Rob Moss, found the munition while sorting through a box of vintage car parts he had recently purchased. Moss said, "I was just going through the parts and buried in one of the boxes was what looks like a 1930s Japanese grenade."
Moss notified authorities who examined the item which was indeed a Japanese Type 97 grenade. It was deemed inert and the area was reopened.
