NOT BE s ATTENTION AT TENTION N E W C A R SHO P P E R S NEW CAR SHOPPERS B RANDON — It proved to be a false alarm, but a brief evacuation of the Brandon courthouse goes to show how seriously security is being taken in light of recent events. An estimated 40 people were evacuated from the building Thursday morning after staff there received a package they considered “ suspicious.” It turns out that the package wasn’t suspicious at all. “ It was sent from a legitimate company,” Brandon Police Service Sgt. Kevin McLean said. “ We got a call that there’s a suspicious package and through protocol we evacuated the building.” McLean said sheriffs at the courthouse reported the package around 9: 35 a. m. He said it appears police were called after the phone number on the package didn’t match that of the originating business. It seems the package was initially in the office where provincial and Queen’s Bench staff work, but was handed over to sheriffs. Roughly 40 people — including lawyers, judges, accused, staff and other visitors — were evacuated to the other side of the street and remained out of the building for about 20 to 30 minutes. Police examined the package, contacted the company it came from and verified it as a legitimate one. The name of the originating company hasn’t been released at this time. McLean believed the parcel may have contained business cards, but that hasn’t been verified. The suspicious package alert comes after bombs were mailed earlier this month to a pair of Winnipeg law offices and a business where a suspect’s ex- wife worked. One exploded and seriously injured a Winnipeg lawyer who had represented the accused’s ex- wife in divorce proceedings. A spokesperson for Manitoba Justice says court staff have been told to follow Canada Post protocols for dealing with suspicious packages. — Brandon Sun We can help. 204- 925- 0600 or 1( 800) 805- 8885 www. adam. mb. ca PHOTOS BY TIM SMITH / BRANDON SUN Hot dog, what a beautiful day!
