– Naturally, a number of investigations were made in connection with the incident, but the result of the investigations was that there was no reasonable reason to open a criminal case and start an investigation, and the case has been closed with the police, says Andreas Listaul Veiding in Oslo police district to Avisa Oslo.
The men have previously told the newspaper that they found the grenade with metal detectors, but did not have mobile phone coverage in the forest. Therefore, it was transported to the car, where they were eventually informed that they had to contact the police.
Police cordoned off the area where the grenade and the car were located. Several nearby houses evacuated until the grenade was secured and later destroyed.
– One can probably question whether it was an ideal solution to carry the grenade from the original site, but the police attorney has assessed that the situation was not punishable under the circumstances and that there was therefore no basis for establishing a criminal case, says Veiding.
