Bomb squad removes grenade-like device from Colchester school

COLCHESTER, Vt. (WCAX) – A Colchester school was evacuated Wednesday after officials found what appeared to be an old hand grenade.

Mallets Bay School officials notified the community just before 1 pm that students were being evacuated to the middle school gym.

Officials say the Vermont State Police Bomb Squad safely removed the object from the school for further evaluation. Students were expected to return to normal schedules after getting the all-clear notice.

Melissa Cooney will have more on the incident on the Channel 3 News starting at 4.
