LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)   —  Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department were called to a location Friday evening following reports that neighbors found a grenade in a neighborhood near Marina del Rey.

Officials were called to the 5100 block of Marvale Drive to investigate the finding just after 10 p.m. Friday.

Homeowners moving into a residence reportedly saw the device — pin intact — and called for help.

After closer inspection, investigators determined the grenade was actually a toy that didn’t contain any explosive material.

Given the all-clear, residents returned to their homes.
