Lower Mainland bomb investigations ongoing
Transit police now confirm a suspicious item turned in at New Westminster skytrain station Monday night was not an explosive. Turns out it was just a metal pipe, wrapped in electrical tape, with a wooden dowel inside. RCMP explosives experts spent the evening testing the object. Trains skipped the station for a half hour. And there is no new information on a suspicious package that forced the evacuation of more than a dozen homes in Delta yesterday. Delta Police and the RCMP bomb squad blew up the football sized package.
