GLENDALE ( — Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say two grenades that prompted evacuations after being found outside a store turned out to be inert.

Several businesses in the 1500 block of West Glenoaks Boulevard were evacuated Wednesday evening when someone discovered the grenades in a bag beneath a mailbox outside a discount store in Glendale.

A sheriff’s bomb squad responded and determined the explosives were not live.

Glendale police Sgt. Robert William says investigators will look for security video and try to lift fingerprints from the bag.
