Police House at Ski evacuated due to suspicious parcel
The Police House at Ski is evacuated because of a suspicious parcel in the public area.
The bomb squad is on the spot to investigate the object. It is uncertain whether the package has arrived via the mail or has been delivered at the reception. There is no danger to the area outside the police house, writes Dagbladet.
The customer reception at the police house in Ski in Akershus is temporarily evacuated, writes the Eastern Police District on Twitter.
– An unidentified object has been discovered that needs to be investigated, Operations Manager in the Eastern Police District, Tom Sandberg, tells Dagbladet.
The Operations Manager says that they are now working to find out what the object is and that it is the public reception area that is cordoned off. That constitutes about half the building.
At 10.20 am, the Eastern Police District reports that the object must be investigated and that they, therefore, have evacuated large parts of the building.
At 11.00 am the police reports that the situation regarding the unidentified object at the Police House is still unresolved.
NTB writes that the Operations Manager will not say anything about what the object is and how it has entered the house, but it may well have come via regular mail.
At 1.05 pm, the police announce that the contents of the package have not yet been clarified and that the bomb squad, therefore: “will dispose of the object under controlled conditions”.
– That means they will blow up the object. This will happen in a short while, the Operations Manager, Tom Sandberg, announces to Dagbladet.
At 2.05 pm, the bomb squad has fired at a package, but there are «elements in the package that leads to further investigations. This will take a minimum of 1 hour», the evacuation and barriers will, therefore, be maintained until further notice.
