GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. – Officers with the Glynn County Police Department were called to Blythe Island Drive in Brunswick on Wednesday evening to investigate what police said was a suspicious device.

Investigators said a man called 911 after finding “possible grenades” while cleaning out the garage of a neighbor who had recently died.

Glynn County Police said because of the appearance of the device and information about the dead person’s former employment and hobbies, they called in the GBI Explosive Ordinance Disposal team. Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency also responded to assist.

The EOD team made the decision to dispose of the devices at the home.

Police said the EOD team used a controlled explosive charge to “successfully neutralize” the devices without property damage or injury.
