Police Called to Possible Bomb Threat Again

Like the previous incidents, this one occurred on 8 Street NW.

Medicine Hat Police were called out to another bomb threat in Northwest Crescent Heights Thursday afternoon.  Much like the previous incidents, the threat was located on 8 Street NW in the business area just off Division Avenue.  Police closed off the street while they investigated and have since determined to be a false alarm.  During the first incident a few weeks ago, a mock explosive device was found and destroyed.  Police believe all 4 incidents are connected and the Priority Street Crimes Unit continues to investigate.  They say the latest threat appears to have come from an off-site location.  Investigators are currently working to corroborate information on a possible suspect or suspects.  ~~  Warren Affleck
