Monday, September 8, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: It has been a while since police have recovered hand grenades from the streets of Belize City.

They have been used in several terrifying incidents in recent years, including the attack on Mayflower Street in 2008, an incident on the day of the Carnival Road March a few months later, and an attack on the house of the Comptroller of Customs, Gregory Griffith.

Over the weekend there was another found, thanks to a tip from a concerned citizen.

Senior Superintendent of Police Edward Broaster confirmed that BDF officials were called in and removed the grenade without incident.

Police did not have much more to add, beyond confirming that they knew which gang was involved with the grenade and what it had been planned to be used for.

But they continue their investigations, even though it is likely that no actual charges will be brought.

The Department said it wished to act in the interest of public safety by not raising undue alarm.

What has not been confirmed is whether the grenade was part of the missing batch removed from the BATSUB compound more than ten years ago.

Approximately 14 of those missing 23 grenades are still unaccounted for.
