Sus­pi­cious pack­ages not dan­ger­ous

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Hamil­ton po­lice have con­cluded the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into two “sus­pi­cious” pack­ages found in Canada Post mail­boxes Fri­day af­ter find­ing they were not ex­plo­sives. The pack­ages found in mail­boxes on Main Street East, near Hux­ley Av­enue and Cameron Street, saw an al­most two-kilo­me­tre stretch of the road closed for hours Fri­day with a bomb ro­bot brought in to de­stroy them. Staff Sgt. Scott More­ton con­firmed they were found not to be ex­plo­sives but couldn’t com­ment fur­ther on what they were or why they had been deemed sus­pi­cious. Po­lice iden­ti­fied the per­son re­spon­si­ble for putting the pack­ages in the mail­boxes, ques­tioned him and have re­leased him with­out charge.
