The Allegheny County Bomb Squad took several World War II-era grenades out of a Scott home on Thursday.

Philomena Cuccaro, 65, said she was cleaning out items from her late father's home on Great Oak Drive just after 3 p.m. when she came across the Japanese-made grenades. Her father, William Tarquinio, a World War II veteran, died in May.

Cuccaro, who also lives in the home, alerted police. She said the bomb squad took the grenades for proper disposal. Police told her two of them could have been active.

The grenades were among her dad's artifacts from his time in the service. No one was injured and the bomb squad quickly cleared the scene, dispatchers said.
