A number of businesses and residences were evacuated Tuesday afternoon as the Winnipeg police bomb unit investigated a suspicious package — one of two such calls they received within a few hours.
Police said they were called to the 200 block of River Avenue with the first report, and evacuated people in the immediate vicinity as a precautionary measure, while also blocking off the intersection of River and Donald Street.
While this investigation was taking place, 911 received another call about a suspicious package — this time at a Canada Post facility on McDermot Avenue.
The bomb unit ultimately determined there was no danger in either case. Police said they didn’t know if the two incidents are related.
