The bomb squad from Fort Carson was called to a Colorado Springs police station when a woman showed up with two hand grenades.

She left them in her car and went into the substation to tell police about the grenades. She says she found them in a storage unit that had belonged to a family member who had died.

Police had to evacuate their station while the bomb squad checked them out.

That happened at the police substation on the north side of Colorado Springs near the Chapel Hills Mall.

Members of the Fort Carson bomb squad determined the hand grenades were stable enough to transport.

Police say if you find anything suspicious on your property, don't move it yourself. Call police and they'll come to you.
