An explosive device, believed to be a grenade, was dropped off at the Airdrie RCMP detachment Friday afternoon.
According to police, it was delivered by a citizen who wasn’t sure what to do with the device.
As a result, the detachment had been evacuated, and the RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit in Edmonton was contacted.
The Explosive Disposal Unit has since attended and removed the possible explosive device from the vehicle.
There’s no word yet on how the citizen obtained the grenade.
