ALPINE, Calif. - A report of a possible hand grenade in the Alpine area Monday prompted a call to the sheriff's Bomb/Arson Unit.
The sighting was reported shortly after 9 a.m. in the 23400 block of Japatul Valley Road near Bell Bluff Truck Trail, sheriff's Lt. Scott Amos said.
The Bomb/Arson Unit had cleared the scene by about 10:45 a.m., but it was not immediately clear if the device was determined to be non-explosive or was rendered safe, according to Amos.
