During the execution of a search warrant on Sunday, May 16, 2021, Dartmouth Police detectives and members of the S.E.M.L.E.C. Search and Rescue Team, located what appeared to be a hand grenade.

As it could not be determined if the device was real and/or active, the Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad was requested, and responded to the scene.

Upon expert evaluation of the device, it was determined that it was military training grenade, and did not pose any threat.

According to Dartmouth Chief of Police, Brian P. LEVESQUE, “I’m both relieved and thrilled that the grenade was found to be a training device only. I am also very proud of the personnel on scene who immediately identified a potential threat, and addressed it both swiftly and accordingly.”
