Darien Police reported Monday that hand grenades were discovered at an Old Kings Highway South residence over the weekend.

According to police, the homeowner indicated he owned a pile of scrap metal to which friends and neighbors would occasionally contribute. Once the pile reached a certain size, the homeowner would trade the scrap in for cash, police said.

At approximately 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5, the homeowner reported he discovered two hand grenades in the pile and called the police and Darien Fire Department. A perimeter was established and the Stamford Police Department Bomb Squad was contacted.

The squad took possession of the grenades and later disposed of them. Authorities said it did not appear the grenades were live.
