FLAGSTAFF, AZ - A Kingman man arrested in a stolen car case also is accused of having a fake booby-trapped hand grenade in the vehicle.
Coconino County Sheriff's officials say 46-year-old Dennis W. Floyd is being held on suspicion of theft of means of transportation and felony misconduct involving a simulated explosive device.
Authorities located Floyd's car about 9 a.m. Wednesday in the parking lot of a motel 10 miles west of Flagstaff.
They say the grenade was dangling from the car's interior roof with one end of a wire attached to the firing pin and the other end tied to the steering wheel.
Sheriff's deputies evacuated the parking lot, parts of the motel and a nearby truck stop. A Flagstaff police bomb squad used a mechanical robot to check out the grenade.
