JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- One San Marco resident got quite the scare after an old hand grenade was found in their yard Monday morning.

A bomb squad team with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded to a home on the 900 block of Holly Lane Monday morning, after the grenade was discovered.

An area around the home was sealed off while the bomb squad investigated.

Oddly enough, this is the third instance of a hand grenade being found in San Marco. In 2010 an antique grenade was found in Brown Whatley Park and back in 2003 a home owner on San Marco Place found an old grenade in their lawn.
