Package of suspicious powder and liquid sparks alarm

STAFF at a Raceview company raised the alarm when they received a suspicious-looking package containing vials of powder and liquid.

Police and firemen investigated the parcel which had been sent from New Zealand. It was believed to have contained vials of unidentified liquids and powders, as well as keys.

Police cordoned off the business in Sonia Crt, as Fire and Rescue crews arrived in bio-hazard gear and took the vials for testing at the John Tonge Centre, Institute of Forensic Pathology and Biology.

It was confirmed that there had been no airborne contamination from the vials.

The New Zealand business from which the package had been sent was contacted, but officials said they knew nothing about the parcel and denied sending it.

Staff at the Raceview business said the package was also a mystery to them.
