What appeared to be items that could cause a serious risk to people in Cow Bay turned out to be nothing more than plastic toys.

What appeared to be items that could cause a serious public safety risk to people in Cow Bay turned out to be nothing more than plastic toys.

RCMP responded to reports of what appeared to be a number of grenades under the bridge in Cow Bay on the morning of Nov. 27, with Prince Rupert RCMP and emergency personnel marshaling at the bridge and closing it to traffic.

However, Const. Matt Ericson, spokesperson of the Prince Rupert RCMP, confirmed that it was a number of toy grenades that were found under the bridge during the investigation.

“There’s no concern for public safety whatsoever,” Ericson said.

While the investigation was underway, nearby businesses were notified but not evacuated.
