CALGARY – Employees at a vehicle auction house in Airdrie made a shocking discovery this week.

RCMP received a call from staff at Adessa on Tuesday, saying what appeared to be a grenade had been found inside the glove box of a vehicle.

Officers cleared the area around the vehicle and called in the RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit (EDU) from Edmonton.

Experts were able to determine the grenade was inert, at which point it was removed and taken to Airdrie Detachment to await proper disposal.
