Police Investigating Suspicious Package Found on Campus

September 23, 2012 - Campus Bulletin

The Science Complex was evacuated late Saturday afternoon while police investigated a suspicious package that was found outside the building by a U of G employee.

The package was eventually destroyed by the explosives disposal unit from the Waterloo Regional Police; the investigation is continuing.

The University employee contacted Campus Police after finding the package near the building’s loading dock. Campus police called the Guelph Police Service. It was later determined that the explosive’s unit was required.

The laneway beside the Science Complex — off Gordon Street between Stone Road and College Avenue — was blocked off with yellow tape for part of the afternoon and early evening as a precaution.

Homecoming activities were not disrupted.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Campus Community Police at 519-824-4120, Ext. 52245, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
