STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) Connecticut waste management employees called in police and the bomb squad after finding a hand grenade in the trash.

Police responded to the Stratford trash company Thursday and after finding what appeared to be a hand grenade, called the state police bomb squad to disarm the explosive. Police say the grenade appeared to be from either World War I or World War II and was thrown out alongside garbage that ended up at the waste facility.

Police say there were no injuries reported and the scene was cleared without incident.
