PLUMSTED, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a World War II-era grenade was found in the basement of a foreclosed home in southern New Jersey.

Plumsted police say they responded to the home around 10:30 a.m. Monday, after a building inspector found the MK 2 grenade in the home’s basement.

Authorities secured the area and contacted the state police. Some nearby homes were also briefly evacuated as a precaution.

The grenade eventually was determined to be inert and was removed without incident by a state police bomb squad.

The incident remains under investigation.
