SAN FRANCISCO —
A suspicious device found in San Francisco's Portola neighborhood Monday afternoon was determined to be a harmless smoke grenade, a police spokesman said.
Police received a report at about 2:50 p.m. of someone who had found some sort of grenade in the 1100 block of Wayland St, near Louis Sutter Playground, police spokesman Officer Carlos Manfredi said.
The Police Department's bomb squad was called to the scene to investigate the device and, at around 3:30 p.m., determined it was a smoke grenade of no danger to the public, Manfredi said.
The device was taken away by the bomb squad to be safely disposed of, he said.
Streets in the area were closed briefly during the investigation.
