Police: Guns sent to Bombardier not criminal
Bombardier says a suspicious package delivered to one of its Toronto facilities was sent in error.
The transportation company offered no further details on what it called a "misdirected" delivery, but CTV reported the package contained four military-grade guns including two assaulta rifles labelled "property of the U.S. government."
Toronto police say they were called to Bombardier's aerospace facility in a northwest part of the city on Aug. 30 for what they called a `"suspicious incident.''
Sgt. Jenifferjit Sidhu says police took possession of the package and have determined the incident was non-criminal.
She says the police investigation into the matter has now concluded.
FedEx provided this emailed statement to our newsroom:
"The safety and security of our customers, our team members, and our network is our top priority. As such, we are conducting a thorough investigation into this matter and cooperating with CBSA."
The US Army says "we are looking into this matter."
Neither police nor Bombardier would confirm the contents of the package.
