Police officers responded to a bomb threat report at the Victoria Courthouse on Burdett Avenue Wednesday morning.
The Victoria Police Spokesman, Const. Cam MacIntyre said the building had been evacuated. Officers with bomb-detection dogs have searched the outside and are investigating the inside to make sure there are no suspicious packages, he said.
Police said the building was vacated around 12:45 p.m. and people could go back to work.
UPDATE | We are working on clearing the building with PSD Bodi & PSD Maverick from @ ics_k9. Thank you for your patience. #yyj pic.twitter.com/u9F1jmpvHl
