ACT Policing General Duties and the Specialist Response Group (SRG) Bomb Response Team attended a residence in Kaleen yesterday (Sunday, May 5) where they rendered a suspicious device safe.
Police were called to the residence after a young person attending a 16th birthday party on Saturday night had brought a present (modified aerosol can) that was considered suspicious.
Police were not informed of the suspicious package until Sunday where they attended the residence. The young person who had brought the suspicious device to the party and his father attended the location.
Information relating to the suspicious device was provided to the SRG before they entered the premises and rendered the device safe.
The young person, who resides in Queanbeyan, attended Gungahlin Police Station where he made full admissions to making the device.
Investigations are ongoing.
