Halifax Regional Police continues to investigate a suspicious envelope that was received at a bank this morning but has cleared the scene.
At 9:03 a.m., police responded to the Credit Union located at 5670 Spring Garden Road. Staff contacted police after a sealed baggie containing powder was discovered in an envelope that came through their bank machine. Three people were isolated temporarily but were released once it was determined that the substance, while not identified, would only be harmful if ingested.
Officers from the HRP Forensic Identification Unit have seized the powder and investigators assigned to the HRP/RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section are investigating the incident. Spring Garden Road has been reopened to vehicular traffic
