**** HRP Media Release
Halifax Regional Police is investigating a bomb threat received in the early morning hours.
At 12:17 a.m., police responded to a building located in the 5600 block of Spring Garden Rd in Halifax for a bomb threat after a call service received a threatening phone call from an anonymous caller. Once on scene police determined the wrong address was provided by the complainant and the threat was actually directed to a building located in the 100 block of Wyse Rd. in Dartmouth. Police quickly contained the area shutting down parts of Wyse Rd., Nantucket Ave. and as a precaution the Macdonald Bridge was closed.
The building was thoroughly searched with the assistance of K9 and nothing suspicious was located.
All roads and the Macdonald Bridge are now open.
The investigation into this matter is continuing. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or using the P3 Tips App.
