SURREY, B.C. — The Mounties called in explosive experts after a person walked into one of their offices in Surrey, B.C., with a grenade on Thursday.
The RCMP say someone went to their Guildford office to hand over the device, saying it was found at a nearby park.
The office and surrounding area had to be evacuated because it was unclear if the grenade was still functioning.
Streets around the detachment were also closed as a precaution.
Const. Sarbjit Sangha says in a news release that anyone who finds a suspicious device or possible explosive should call police.
Sangha says no one should handle a potential explosive, instead they should keep their distance and then call 911.
