Training grenade found outside Connecticut LA Fitness

January 10, 2019
Police are looking into how the device ended up near the Connecticut gym.

An LA Fitness employee discovered an unusual object in a garbage can outside the gym Thursday morning – a grenade.

The discovery brought firefighters and police, including a bomb squad, to the gym at 3563 Berlin Turnpike about 7:50 a.m., police said.

The device turned out to be a training grenade, and it was hollow and therefore not a threat, Sgt. Christopher Perry said.

Police now have to try to figure out how it ended up there.

“The investigation will try and determine who dropped it there,” Perry said.

The gym was expected to reopen soon.

“We appreciate the bomb squad getting here so quickly,” he said.
