A grenade that was found in front of a recycling plant in Hartford on Sunday morning was a training grenade, according to police.
Officials said employees found the grenade in a snow bank in front of the entrance of the CRRA Plant on Murphy Road.
The employees called 911 around 8:30 a.m. and police and firefighters were dispatched to the business. The building was evacuated.
Firefighters confirmed the device found was a grenade, but they were unsure if it was a training grenade or a live grenade.
The Hartford Police Department Bomb Squad responded to the scene and removed the grenade.
Experts said the device was a training grenade.
Part of Murphy Road near the business was blocked off for safety reasons, but has since reopened.
