Possible WWII grenade found in Lexington

Lexington Police say construction workers renovating a home found a grenade in the backyard, and they say it may be from World War Two.

A robot placed the grenade in a containment vessel and removed it from the scene. 

It was later detonated in a controlled location.

Officers say the grenade was likely in the ground for an extended period of time.

There were no other explosives found in the area.
