The NYPD and FDNY were on the scene Tuesday afternoon when an inert grenade was found inside an apartment in South Richmond Hill, police said. According to authorities, at approximately 11:20 a.m., police received a call reporting a suspicious device located at 112th Street and Liberty Avenue. Initial reports said the grenade was found outside of a Chase bank at the site, but authorities later confirmed it was found in an apartment above the bank. According to multiple reports, the entire building was told to evacuate and the bank temporarily closed. A post on the 106th Precinct’s Community Council Facebook page said the call came from a construction crew doing cleanup. As a result of the activity, subway service was briefly suspended between Rockaway Boulevard and Ozone Park-Lefferts Boulevard and roads were closed to both traffic and pedestrians.
