Threat at Cornwall post office being probed by North Bay police

CORNWALL – Police from North Bay and Cornwall are looking into a threat made about the Canada Post office in Cornwall this morning (Tuesday).

Cornwall Police Service Communications Coordinator Stephanie MacRae says they received information from the North Bay Police Service this morning about the threat made to the outlet on Boundary Road, in the city’s east end.

“Right now, they’re investigating it and we’re assisting them with that investigation,” MacRae said.

“The statement made by the involved party is deemed to be non-criminal in nature. There’s no concern for public safety and the investigation is still ongoing at this time,” she said.

North Bay Police Service is leading the investigation.

North Bay Police Community Safety Coordinator John Schultz says a call center in North Bay received information and contacted Cornwall authorities, who in turn called North Bay Police.

The phone call originated in Cornwall.
