SOUTHWEST HARBOR—The municipal parking lot on Village Green Way was closed for two hours Friday while a state police bomb technician removed a hand grenade from a pickup truck.
According to Southwest Harbor police Chief Dave Chapais, a resident arrived at the police station around 10:15 a.m. to find out how he should dispose of a hand grenade he discovered in his late brother’s possessions.
Once police learned the explosive device was about 30 feet away inside the man’s pickup truck, they cordoned off the area and notified state police and the Southwest Harbor Fire Department. The town office, which is above the fire station, the Southwest Harbor Public Library and nearby businesses were alerted to the potentially dangerous situation.
“We had everybody at a safe distance or under cover,” Chief Chapais said.
Maine State Police Trooper David Barnard, who is a member of the state police bomb squad, arrived at the scene shortly before noon. After meeting with Southwest Harbor police and the man who took the grenade to the station, the trooper approached the vehicle and removed the device, which was described as a “pineapple grenade.”
There is some question as to whether the grenade was live or had been deactivated. Police weren’t taking any chances.
“As far as we’re concerned it was a live grenade,” Chief Chapais said.
Live or not, Maine State Police will dispose of the grenade, the chief said.
People who find potentially dangerous explosive devices are asked to call the police department for advice instead of taking them into the station, Chief Chapais said.
