Update on bomb threat at mall
Sep 27, 2013 / 11:31 am
It has been learned that the Kelowna RCMP evacuated the Orchard Park Mall on Thursday evening because a note found on a car indicated there was a bomb inside the building.
Cst. Kris Clark says the threat was “very general in nature,” but the mall was emptied as a precaution.
A dog trained in the detection of explosive devices helped clear the building and nothing suspicious was found.
Over 30 officers from Kelowna and the surrounding area were on scene, and the investigation remains in its infancy.
Anyone with information who has yet to speak with police is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
You can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
