SUFFOLK, Va. — UPDATE: City officials in Suffolk said a grenade from a box of donated goods at a Goodwill location was found Friday afternoon.
The explosive device was reported to be in the 6500 block of Hampton Roads Parkway.
Dispatchers were notified about the situation shortly after 1 p.m. Suffolk Fire & Rescue, the Suffolk Police Department and Virginia State Police's bomb squad responded to the report.
Investigators believe the grenade was live but it wasn't intentionally delivered to the store. VSP's bomb squad has taken possession of the item. Businesses that were evacuated have since been given an all-clear.
This marks the fourth time recently that explosive devices were reported.
On March 8, an old grenade was found in Suffolk, near the site of the old Nansemond Ordnance Depot. Earlier this month, another crew in Suffolk found an unexploded device in the 3500 block of Godwin Boulevard. On Tuesday, construction crews found a cannonball on the beach at Willoughby Spit in Norfolk.
