Penticton  

Bombing suspect released

The suspect in last week's bombing incident in Penticton was released on conditions over the weekend.

The Penticton RCMP is also seeking charges against the 30-year-old man. He will not be identified until the charges are approved.

"That will be up to crown, once they get the package and deal with it," said Staff Sgt. Kurt Lozinski.

The RCMP is not releasing further information on explosive material that was found and disposed of, because they don't want it going out to others.

Police responded to a house on Windsor Avenue last Thursday, after an explosion rocked the neighbourhood.

The blast damaged a fence and shrapnel hit a house, taking out a ground floor window.

On Friday, the bomb squad from Vancouver was at the location to dispose of other dangerous materials found in the home.
