Officers defuse live grenade safely

GEOLOGISTS made a potentially explosive find on the weekend at a property near Tilbuster.

A group of experts came across a live grenade at 12.30pm on Saturday after exploring old mine shafts on the McCannas Road property.

The grenade, believed to date back to about World War I, was discovered just 30 metres from the house.

Specialist Rescue and Bomb Disposal Unit officers were called to examine the grenade.

New England Local Area Command’s Acting Inspector Stuart Gray said the device was found to pose no immediate threat.

But he told The Express it remained unclear how the grenade got on the property.

“We consulted with the experts and determined that the device was old and of minimal risk,” he said.

“According to army experts, grenades such as this have been found across the state and it’s not uncommon to find one.

“Anyone who comes across one is urged to call the authorities immediately.”

The grenade was collected and disposed of at about 4.30pm on Monday by a Weapons Expo Unit from Sydney.
