RCMP are sharing an update on the bomb detonation that occurred at the Steinbach Law Courts yesterday afternoon.

Police say they received an anonymous 911 call at 12:15 PM indicating that there was a bomb in the building’s washroom. The law courts were immediately evacuated. RCMP then rushed to the scene where they located a suspicious device in the men’s washroom. Police Dog Services were also called to the scene to search for any other suspicious packages. None were found. The Explosive Disposal Unit neutralized the device which, upon further inspection, was determined to be a hoax.

Steinbach RCMP along with the Major Crime Unit and Forensic Identification Services continue to investigate. Anyone with additional information on the matter is asked to call the Steinbach RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
