  • Surrey RCMP Guildford office closed due to an investigation into a grenade

SURREY, B.C. - The Mounties called in explosive experts after a person walked into one of their offices in Surrey, B.C., with a grenade on Thursday.

The RCMP say someone went to their Guildford office to hand over the device, saying it was found at a nearby park.

The office and surrounding area had to be evacuated because it was unclear if the grenade was still functioning.

Streets around the detachment were also closed as a precaution.

Const. Sarbjit Sangha says in a news release that anyone who finds a suspicious device or possible explosive should call police.

Sangha says no one should handle a potential explosive, instead they should keep their distance and then call 911.
