Dropped-off geocache closes Regina police HQ for 1 hour
Concerned citizen brought in suspicious package
The Regina Police Service evacuated its lobby after a geocache container was dropped off on Tuesday.
A concerned citizen walked into the police headquarters at approximately 1:15 p.m. CST with a suspicious package found in a local park.
As a precaution, the lobby was evacuated, the front doors were locked and a bomb disposal unit was brought in to inspect the package.
It was determined the package was not a threat.
Geocaching is a treasure hunt of sorts that involves using a global positioning system to find hidden containers.
Police recommend if you find a package you feel is suspicious, do not touch it. Instead, call the authorities immediately and experts will be sent out to assess the situation.
