Several homes in a Pasadena neighborhood were evacuated this morning after a resident discovered a grenade inside their home in the 300 block of Parke Street, according to CBS2. A bomb squad from the LA County Sheriff's Department was sent to investigate, and were able to dismantle and remove the device. The grenade was determined to be "inert" and "harmless," says the Pasadena Star-News. Neighbors were permitted to return to their homes around Noon.
