Fort Thomas student brings grenade to school

FORT THOMAS, KY (FOX19) - Fort Thomas police responded to Woodfill Elementary Wednesday morning on a report that a student brought a hand grenade on school property.

Upon arrival the student was found to have brought a "paperweight" to school, but it was actually an old non-active, drilled out hand grenade. Police say the grenade did not contain any explosives or mechanisms that would have made it active.

School remained in session without incident. The principal requested the item to be confiscated and logged into evidence at the Fort Thomas Police Department.
