GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say two grenades that prompted evacuations after being found outside a store turned out to be inert.

Several businesses were evacuated Wednesday evening when someone discovered the grenades in a  bag beneath a mailbox in Glendale.

A sheriff's bomb squad responded and determined the explosives were not live.

Glendale police Sgt. Robert William says investigators will look for security video and try to lift fingerprints from the bag.
