MONTGOMERY, AL - The Montgomery Police Department says it has identified both men in connection with a case involving a live ordnance found in the parking lot of a local WalMart. Now, the U.S. District Attorney's office is looking into possible charges over the incident.

The men left the unexploded ordnance in the parking lot of the Ann Street WalMart around noon Saturday. Units responded to the scene of a possible grenade and located a live 40 mm round that had been placed in the front parking lot closest to the store.

The Montgomery Police Department's Bomb Squad responded, took charge of the devices, and rendered it safe.  

Authorities acquired video evidence of the suspects and released their images to the media. One suspect turned himself in after seeing the story on TV. He said the incident was all a poor decision by himself and the other person, and that they were just trying to get rid of the device.

Police say they're still searching for the second suspect, and though he is not identified to the media, they do know who he is.

The Montgomery Police Department was notified by the United States Department of Justice Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) that this case will be presented to the US Attorney's Office for a review and determination on whether charges are warranted.
