Woman drives hand grenade to police station in her car

A member of the public travelled to the
Vorst police station in her car together with a hand grenade she was eager to
hand over to police officers.  The woman
had found the grenade among the belongings of her husband, who is described as
a “collector”.  The police station and
the offices of the adjoining commercial court had to be evacuated as a
precaution.  Streets were closed and the
army bomb squad was called to the scene to disarm the device.

According to media outlet Bruzz it was on 5
January that the woman found the device among her husband’s belongings and took
the decision to drive it to the police station  

The army bomb squad then took possession of
the device that was taken away for destruction during a controlled explosion.

As soon as the device was out of the area
streets were reopened.  The police have
expressed joy at the woman’s decision to inform them of the device but urge the
public at large not to proceed to attempt to transport similar devices on their
own.  That’s to avoid the risk of an
uncontrolled explosion.
