Needle in ticket dispenser

Victoria police have issued a public warning after a hypodermic needle was found in a downtown parking ticket dispenser.

The person who discovered the uncapped syringe told police it was placed in “such a way as to potentially cause injury.”

“We’re encouraging everyone ... to check where you would receive your ticket to make sure there is no syringe there,” said Const. Matthew Rutherford.

Parking ambassadors were out checking dispensers on Thursday, the city says, and the matter is under investigation.
