TARRYTOWN - A hand grenade owned by a World War II veteran caused some tense moments in a Westchester neighborhood last night.

The Westchester County Bomb Squad was called after 8:30 p.m. to a home on Cottontail Lane just off of Deertrack Lane in Tarrytown because of the possibly deadly device.

Officials say the grenade belonged to a veteran who had recently passed away. His family had found it in the basement of their home. Investigators told News 12 the grenade looked to be a live one and was quickly put into a special carrier and taken away.

There were no evacuations, and no injuries were reported.
