A white female approximately 20 years old, blond hair­,wearing a red hoodi­e, dropped a suitcase near the fountain and kept on walking. ‎Officers began to cordon off the area around the fountain. The suitcase was lo­cated which  was act­ually a picnic basket that the officers were able to determi­ne was empty.  The area around the fount­ain  was reopened to the public at 11:40­am.
At the time of this incident the Bluenose Youth run was in progress and some of the route was on the streets surrounding the Commons. There was no interruption to this run.

‎Officers are attemp­ting to locate the female suspect to det­ermine what the moti­vation was in her dr­opping the basket on the Commons.
