Dynamite found in Burnaby

Residents of a high-rise apartment building in Burnaby, B.C. remain evacuated after what appears to be dynamite was found in one of the units.

Residents of the 39-storey building (in the 4200 block of Grange St.) were told to leave late Monday as police were conducting a search for drugs.

The RCMP said they found about 10 sticks of dynamite during a search that also uncovered drugs and firearms in an 11th floor apartment.

Police have reportedly removed the dynamite and were burning it in a city park.

Some residents have gone to a local community centre to wait out the police operation. (CKNW)
