Charlottetown Police are investigating a suspicious device that was located on the property of a Passmore Street residence just before noon today. The property which is under new ownership is being renovated and workers located a metal pipe with end caps and immediately called police. As the visual appearance of this device is consistent with how pipe-bomb’s are constructed the Explosive Removal Unit from Halifax is attending to deal with the device. Police have coordinated off the area and have evacuated residents neighboring the property.
A further update will be given when later in the day.
