SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) -- Police in Salisbury evacuated some businesses temporarily after a live hand grenade was found inside a box. 

Officers were called to an antique store around 1:30 p.m. Thursday when store employees discovered the grenade in a box brought to the store with some other previously owned items. 

Officers evacuated some nearby businesses until the Cabarrus County Bomb Squad arrived. 

Police Chief Rory Collins said a member of the bomb squad put the grenade in a secured container and it was taken to the Cabarrus County range to be destroyed. 

No injuries were reported.
