WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) — Williamsburg Police were called Wednesday morning to investigate a suspicious object that was thought to be a hand grenade.
It turned out to be just a rubber toy.
Businesses in the area were evacuated as a precaution, but police later gave the all-clear, confirming it was a toy.
“There is no danger to the public. Thank you to the FBI, ATF, and the Newport News Fire Department bomb squad for their swift and professional assistance,” police said.
