STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) — A hand grenade found in the trash by Connecticut waste management employees has been disarmed.

Police responded to the Stratford trash company Thursday and after finding what appeared to be a hand grenade, called the state police bomb squad to disarm the explosive. Police say the grenade appeared to be from either World War I or World War II and was thrown out alongside garbage that ended up at the waste facility.

Police say there were no injuries reported and the scene was cleared without incident.

The small California city at the base of the tallest U.S. dam filed a lawsuit Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018, against the state over an emergency that forced authorities to order 188,000 people to flee last year, arguing the crisis was caused by decades of mismanagement. The City of Oroville blames a culture of cronyism and a priority for low cost dam repairs over quality maintenance for the crisis. Its lawsuit is the latest escalation in years of tension between water managers and Oroville city officials who believe state officials never delivered promised dam benefits and skimped on repairs to continue delivering cheap water to farmers and Southern California residents.
