All clear after suspicious package found at Henri-Bourassa Metro

An area around the Henri-Bourassa Metro station was closed for several hours as a precaution after a suspicious package was found.

Police arrived at the Metro at about 10:15 P.M. Monday after a bag with several containers of an unknown liquid was found near the western end of the building.

Emergency crews setup a large perimeter using Berri, Saint-Denis, Prieur and Gouin while investigators and a bomb squad evaluated the bag.

At about 3:20 A.M. police determined the liquid was not explosive or chemical.

No one was hurt and Metro service was not disrupted during the operation.
