CALGARY – Employees at a vehicle auction house in Airdrie made a shocking discovery this week.

RCMP received a call from staff at Adessa on Tuesday, saying what appeared to be a grenade had been found inside the glove box of a vehicle.

Officers cleared the area around the vehicle and called in the RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit (EDU) from Edmonton.

Experts were able to determine the grenade was inert, at which point it was removed and taken to Airdrie Detachment to await proper disposal.

CALGARY – A portion of southbound Highway 2 was closed for several hours on Tuesday as police investigated a crash.

Two vehicles were involved in a collision near Veterans Boulevard just before 4 a.m.

The incident sent a teenage male to hospital with minor injuries, and forced the closure of Highway 2 between Veterans Boulevard and Yankee Valley Boulevard.

Police say it was indicated to them that a second male may have been involved, but didn’t stay at the scene of the crash.

Investigators believe the trucks weren’t actually driving on the QEII, but had traveled through a fence off of Edmonton Trail to enter the busy highway.

Police were involved in the pursuit of at least one vehicle on Tuesday morning in relation to a break and enter, but won’t confirm if that incident is in any way connected to the collision.

The QEII highway was reopened just before 7:30 a.m.
