Suspicious Package update

On March 24th, 2020 at approximately 12:30 p.m. an unknown female attended to the Medicine Hat Police Service (MHPS) building located at 884 2nd Street SE, and entered the front foyer of the building with a large black bag. Once in the foyer, the female noted signs which advised that the front doors of MHPS were locked, left the bag in the area, and then proceed to immediately leave the area.

Upon noticing the bag, members of the MHPS were able to secure the surrounding area. Members of the MHPS Explosive Disposal Unit (EDU) examined the bag, which was determined to be full of personal items.

MHPS would like to remind the public, that even though access to MHPS is limited due to current COVID-19 protocols, property should not be left unattended at the MHPS or anywhere else within the city. Report found property to the MHPS by calling the non-emergency line 403-529-8481.
