PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - The bomb squad was called to a Pembroke Pines home to remove some hand grenades that were found.
7SkyForce hovered over the scene along the 20000 block of Northwest Fifth Street, Friday, after the hand grenades were reportedly found in the garage of the property by a cleaning crew.
“Empty house for many years and they found them in here,” said a woman in a pink dress.
Officials cordoned off the area and evacuated adjacent houses until the weapons were removed.
Pembroke Pines Police said the grenades were legally owned by the previous homeowner.
“There’s a bomb squad disposal vehicle parked out front, neighbors out looking around,” said 7Skyforce Ralph Rayburn.
Within several hours, the home was safely cleared, and neighborhood residents were allowed to reenter their homes.
“Took them away, and that’s it,” said the woman in a pink dress.
The home remains empty.
