The Broward Sheriff’s Office bomb squad was called out to a Waste Management garbage facility to help deal with a possible grenade in the garbage.

Pembroke Pines police said BSO extricated the object and determined, yes, it was a grenade. But it was a training grenade, not a live grenade.

It was found during garbage sorting at 20701 Pembroke Rd. Monday morning.
