Report #: 17-00387


On the above date and time, inspectors from Ventura City Code Enforcement were conducting a follow up inspection of the Leewood Motel, 732 E. Santa Clara St., which had recently been red tagged due to a structure fire that closed the motel.

While doing the inspection, the inspector found what appeared to be a live grenade in one of the rooms. Officers responded and requested the assistance of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department Bomb Squad. Because of the fire, the motel was already vacant of residents, but the immediate area was secured. The bomb squad removed the grenade, although later determined that it was inert.

The grenade was later destroyed.
