BOMB SCARE IN VILLAGE DUMPSTER LIKELY FIRECRACKERS
On Sunday the 29th of November 2015 at 9:55 P.M., Six Nations Police responded to a report of a possible pipe bomb in a dumpster at the Iroquois Plaza, called in by Six Nations Fire.
Police spoke with the Fire Chief who told Police that they received a call about a pipe bomb in a dumpster behind the plaza.
Police investigated the scene and found no evidence of any type of explosive materials that would suggest a bomb of any kind.
Potential witnesses told Police that a car was seen leaving the area of the dumpster right after the loud bang was heard by neighbourhood residents.
Police believe that the materials in the dumpster were likely firecrackers of some sort, and the sound heard was likely amplified due to the large size of the dumpster itself.
Police have limited information on suspects at this time and are continuing to investigate.
