BB guns, inert grenades, ammunition causes scare at Temple City church

TEMPLE CITY — BB guns, bullets and inert grenades left in a Temple City church Friday prompted officials to call in the bomb squad, authorities said.
Officials received a call about 3:30 p.m. reporting a possible explosive device left inside the Victory in Christ Church, 5221 El Monte Ave., Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Conti said.
Deputies evacuated the area around the church and called for the sheriff’s bomb squad to investigate a box found inside the church filled with suspicious contents.
The bomb squad determined that the box contained BB guns, bullets and grenades that had had the explosives removed, Conti said, and sounded the all-clear shortly after 6 p.m.
Deputies were investigating who left the items at the church and why.
