CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - Two grenades were discovered as an attic was being cleaned out in Chesapeake Tuesday.
The grenades were found on opposite sides of the attic inside a home in the 500 block of Briarfield Drive around 11:45 a.m., Kelly O'Sullivan with the Chesapeake Police Department told WAVY.com.
Family members were cleaning out the attic following the death of a loved one and made the discovery.
"It was frightening," neighbor Angeline Mantey said. "The attic of that house is right near my house. It's right next door and my daughter's room is right there."
Members of the Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) removed the grenades from the home. Nothing exploded and there were no injuries.
The Navy EOD team found one grenade did not have any explosive material. The second was taken to Naval Weapons Station Yorktown for disposal, because it could not be determined whether it had explosive material.
