A traffic stop in Hoover on Saturday afternoon turned a potential home explosive device.
Officer Brian Hale said Hoover officers pulled over a pickup truck on US 31 at 3:30 p.m. and pulled the truck into the parking lot of Econo Lodge.
During the stop, the police came to know what had come out of the grenade. The department’s explosives ordinance disposal team responded to the motel to secure the equipment.
Shortly after 4:30 pm, a big scene was shown with the crime scene te and the truck of the bomb squad.
The grenade was taken away from the spot and investigation is on.
The pickup driver has been arrested and warrants for possession of explosive devices will be obtained. Officials are yet to reveal the driver’s intention to possess the grenade.
