Training hand grenade found

Yesterday about 5:30PM the Woodstock Police Department was notified of a suspicious item near the railroad tracks in the Applewood subdivision off McConnell Road. Police responded to the area of 2400 Aspen Drive and observed what appeared to be a rusty hand the grass along a wood line.

The Kane County Sheriff's Department bomb squad was summoned and arrived about 8:30PM. They determined that it was a non-functioning training hand grenade and removed it.

Thanks to the area resident who informed me, so that I could request this information from the P.D. The information is now on the website of the Woodstock Police Department, where it was posted at 3:20PM.
