On the Safe Side
Chilliwack firefighters, police called to suspicious item on Patton Ave
But early Monday afternoon, police and fire were called to the 45000-block of Patton Ave. to retrieve something on the roof of a one-storey building.
A Chilliwack officer winces as she examines a strange parcel of clothing found on a roof.
Firefighters laddered up to the roof and tossed down a day pack with clothes in it.
The officer checked the bundle before putting it in the trunk of a cruiser.
It's possible the clothes were used in a crime or robbery and then tossed up on the roof afterward out of reach of a police dog's nose.
Here's some tips from the federal government on what to do if you find a suspicious package, or have one delivered.
