Suspicious Package Leads To Charges

A 37-year-old woman is facing charges after a suspicious package was delivered to a downtown building.

The package, delivered to a business at 148 Fullerton Ave. around 3:50pm on Friday, contained an unknown powder substance. The building was evacuated as a precaution and the London Fire Department Hazardous Material Team and London police were called.

Further investigation found the powder substance to be non-hazardous.

A female employee was taken to hospital and later released.

A London woman is charged with mischief under $5,000 and administering a noxious substance.
