According to a release sent out by the Police Press Officer, the grande which was wrapped in a black plastic bag and inside of an old knapsack, was found in an overgrown area in the Fathers Road Extension area around 6:40 pm on Wednesday.
Police say the the bomb expert from the Belize Defence Force was called in where the device was identified to be “an M26 American origin high explosive grenade.”
