The students at Johnson Academy were moved from their classrooms to the auditorium and Stratford police along with the Connecticut State Police were called to the scene, the WFSB-TV reported.
“The bomb technician reported the simulated hand grenade could combust and cause damage to property and persons within a 15 to 20 foot radius,” police said in a statement on Tuesday.
The bomb technician for the Connecticut State Police was able to remove the grenade from the school.
After the item was removed from the school, Miguel talked with police and confirmed that she had given the grenade to her son for the school lesson.
Miguel told police that her deceased father gave the WWII simulated hand grenade to her as gift from his “military
days.” She said that she thought the grenade was a “dud.”
Miguel was charged with risk of injury to a minor, reckless endangerment and possession of an explosive device.
She was released with a promise to appear at Bridgeport Superior Court on June 16.
