Grenade Discovered in Abandoned Mission Structure
MISSION – Police say a code enforcement officer found a grenade while doing rounds in a dilapidated structure in Mission.
The grenade didn’t have a safety pin or a safety lever.
The code enforcement officer took the grenade to the Mission Police Department and that’s when the McAllen Bomb Squad was called in.
The grenade was deemed not a danger but was taken for further evaluation.
An inspection was done at that home and a second grenade was found and also taken in.
"We don't usually advise for people to bring in grenades to us," says Mission Police Department Lt. David Mesa. "Usually, it's better to just leave it alone and call your local authorities and let them handle it that way."
We’re told nobody lives at that home.
