Bend, OR -

The Deschutes County sheriff's office says a person picking up litter along a road in La Pine found a military-type grenade.

The Oregon State Police bomb squad responded Saturday and told deputies it was a training grenade that had been re-activated and was still dangerous.

The sheriff's office says the grenade apparently had been along the side of the road for some time and there was no sign of criminal intent.
