Bomb task force called out to local elementary school

The San Luis Obispo County Bomb Task Force responded to a report of a student who brought an antique hand grenade to Almond Acres Charter Academy, which is located on the campus of Lillian Larsen Elementary School in San Miguel.

The school immediately went on partial lockdown and five homes in the area were evacuated as a precaution.

Investigators determined an 11-year-old boy brought the World War II relic to class for show and tell. The school treated the antique hand grenade as real and called the Sheriff's Office.

The Bomb Task Force responded and disposed of the hand grenade.

No one was injured and the residents who were evacuated were allowed to return to their homes by 11 a.m.

The student was not arrested but was turned over to his parents.
