ARMY BOMB DISPOSAL CALLED OUT TO A PROPERTY ON GOULDEN STREET AFTER REPORTS OF A SUSPICIOUS ITEM


Local News

A large police presence and an Army Bomb Disposal Unit are currently on the scene at a property on Goulden Street in the Seedley area which has been subjected to police forensics searches throughout the week.

Police have previously reported that two firearms were recovered from the property and several arrests have been made.

We believe that officers called an alert after finding a suspicious item during continued searches of the property and that the bomb squad were called in to assess the situation, which they now deem to NOT be a threat.
