Glenville residents in Jackson County received a surprise when three grenades were found near the spillway and dam this week.
The grenades have been safely detonated with no damage or injuries. Water levels at the lake were lowered over the past few weeks which led to the discovery of the grenades.
Major Shannon H. Queen with the sheriff’s office is urging visitors to this area to be cautious and if they see any suspicious items to contact 911 immediately and stay away from the items found.
NC Wildlife, Jackson County Emergency Management and the NCSBI are assisting in the investigation.
