The Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad detonated a suspicious device found in a car in Salisbury that was determined to be a live explosive device.
It happened just after 3 p.m. along the 300 block of S. Church Street, near the La Cava restaurant.
Police say a man acquired a vacuum sealed container from a local recycling company.
When he opened it he found what appeared to be a grenade with several wires sticking out of it, according to police.
The block was evacuated and people are being asked to stay clear of the area, Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said.
"I went to Foil's yesterday and I purchased a container and I came back and opened it today and it happened to have a device that looks like a grenade with five inch fuse on it," Carlos Ortiz told WBTV.
He said he immediately called police.
"It was just, watching TV and everything, knowing that the best thing to do is not to try and figure it out for yourself and let them figure it out," Ortiz said. "You've done enough by seeing what the problem was and then let them take care of the rest."
Just after 5 p.m. the Bomb Squad said they had determined the device was a live explosive. They dug a hole for the device to be dropped into, and detonated it around 5:30 to destroy it.
The Salisbury Police and Salisbury Fire Department are on the scene.
