HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – A grenade and black powder were removed from a house in Hubbard.

According to a police report, officers were called about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday to a house in the 1100 block of Fairchild Drive.

A man there told officers he was cleaning out the house when he found the grenade.

A Youngstown Bomb Squad technician determined that the grenade “had been live,” but the powder and part of the blasting cap had been removed, according to the police report.
