Police in South Jersey were called to Shore Drive in North Cape May on Saturday on a report of a hand grenade found at a yard sale. 

Lower Township Police determined that the hand grenade was unexploded and immediately evacuated the area of Shore Drive between Racetrack Drive and Folsom Drive, according to an alert.

Once the area was safely evacuated, officers maintained a secure perimeter until the arrival of the Atlantic City Police Department’s Bomb Squad Unit. 

The Atlantic City Bomb Squad was safely able to remove the device and transport it to a secure location, police said.

Lower Township Police were then able to reopen area roads

The Lower Township Police Department took the opportunity to remind residents that if they discover artillery, i"t should not be touched or moved. Artillery should be left in place for appropriately trained and equipped authorities to assess and remove," the alert said.
