SAN LEANDRO — Police are investigating a suspicious device found inside a storage container by a San Leandro resident.
Sometime before 11 a.m. today, a man who lives in a home on Belvedere Avenue removed a container from a Tri Valley storage unit, drove home and began looking through it, said Lt. Randy Brandt. The man recently bought a storage unit and its contents and had been transporting the items from the unit to his home to see what he had purchased, Brandt said.
Inside the container the man found what appeared to be a grenade, Brandt said.
The man called police who in turn alerted the Alameda County bomb squad unit.
As of about 1 p.m. the unit was still inspecting the device to see if it was a live grenade.
Police are investigating the incident, Brandt said.
