• Police remove possible grenade from Vt shopping plaza
     | August 23,2013

    MORRISTOWN — Vermont State Police explosives experts have been trying to determine whether a hand grenade found in the drive-thru lane of a Morrisville restaurant was real or a novelty item.

    Morrisville police said they were called to the Morrisville Shopping Plaza at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after receiving the report about the grenade outside a McDonald’s restaurant.

    When officers arrived they determined it was a completely assembled grenade.

    Police shut down parts of Route 15, evacuated the plaza and called in the state police bomb squad.

    State police experts made the device safe and removed it. They said they would X-ray it to see if it was real.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Morrisville police at 888-4211.
