The Medicine Hat Police Service continues to investigate an incident that took place at the courthouse September 19, 2019, which resulted in a precautionary evacuation of the premises.
The investigation has not revealed any suspicious activity, packages or substances. One person was taken to hospital as a precaution, however it appears that symptoms were likely due to an unrelated medical issue. One exhibit was collected at scene and preliminary examinations indicate nothing out of the ordinary. The MHPS expects to conclude the investigation shortly.
