Police have issued a warning after raw meat and rice were found placed at multiple intersections in a neighbourhood in Airdrie.

At 11 a.m. Saturday, police were called about a "suspicious item/activity" in the Ravenswood neighbourhood of the southern Alberta city, RCMP said.

"Several pieces of raw meat with rice were located on all four corners of various intersections … along with the raw meat there was a one dollar coin (loonie) located," police said.

Police said they're "unsure" why the meat was placed at intersections, and are asking people to take extra precautions while walking with children or pets. Pets should be kept in yards or on leashes, police said. 

Anyone with information about the intersection meat mystery is asked to contact Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7200, or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
