LETHBRIDGE, AB – A 29 year old man is in custody after he allegedly threw a suspicious package into the front vestibule of the police station Thursday morning.
The lobby was closed to the public at about 10:15am and the LPS Explosive Disposal Unit was brought in to investigate.
The EDU determined the package was not explosive in nature and the HAZMAT Unit verified it contained no hazardous materials either.
By 1:30pm, the front lobby was once again open to the public.
Police say no further information is being released at this time as the incident is still under investigation.
