Police called in a bomb squad to remove a World War II-era hand grenade found at an Arlington home Sunday.
Arlington Police Chief Fred Ryan said the department received a call from 11 Village Lane about 2 p.m. Sunday about a suspicious object at the home. Police determined the object was a potentially live grenade and established a 300-foot perimeter around the home while calling in explosive ordnance disposal technicians from Boston, Cambridge and state police. Bomb technicians then removed the grenade.
Ryan said that the grenade appears to have belonged to the previous owner of the home, who is now deceased.
