Colorado Springs Police Wants Bombs Left Alone

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado Springs police have a request for people who find suspected explosives — don’t bring them to the police station.

On Monday, the bomb squad from Fort Carson was called to a Colorado Springs police station when a woman showed up with two hand grenades she found in a storage unit. Police had to evacuate their station while the bomb squad checked them out and found they were harmless.

It was the second time in a week that someone brought police suspected explosives. On July 18, someone brought in a piece of suspicious mail to another station and the bomb squad had to be called.

Police say if you find anything suspicious on your property, don’t move it yourself. “Call police and they’ll come to you,” police advised.
