PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a roadside cleaning crew has found a live grenade along a state highway 74 in Peoria.
The Arizona Department of Transportation says the grenade was discovered Tuesday morning along Arizona 74.
Peoria police say Arizona 74 was closed for part of the morning from Interstate 17 to Lake Pleasant Parkway while the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad worked to render the device safe.
The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/SKya6s) reports that once the device is removed, the bomb squad will check the area to make sure no other devices are present.
