Grenade Found In Lexington Yard

There was an explosive find Thursday morning in the yard of a Lexington home.

The bomb squad was called out to a home on Mentelle Park just after nine.

The homeowner says her gardener was digging in the yard when she came across something strange. The gardener thought it was a rock or clump of dirt but realized it was a grenade on closer inspection.

The woman immediately called 911.

Police responded to the scene, shutting the road down for a while.

The bomb squad examined the device and found that it was a cast iron replica of a pineapple style grenade. Police then gave the all clear.

The homeowner says she'll hang on to the grenade. She thinks it'll make a great conversation piece.
