VICTOR HARBOR – A grenade handed into the Victor Harbor police station prompted local officers to close the doors for about an hour today.

A member of the public handed in the grenade at about 1.45pm on Monday, August 29, after they found it when cleaning out a property, and police closed the station as a precaution.

The grenade was moved to a safer location so the station could be reopened.

Australian Army personnel will safely remove and dispose of the grenade.

Police remind the community to not touch or remove such objects if found and call police assistance on 131 444, as old items could be unpredictable or dangerous.
