Can anyone shed some light as to why the entire block (Alinga, Moore, Northboure, Rudd St) was sealed off by Police this afternoon at 5pm when i walked past ?
Police had the tape out and were standing on and between all street corners of this block. After asking a bystander i was told there had been a couple of suspicious packages found. As i was being told this information, a loud explosive sound belowed from the block turning many heads in the general direction.
It sounded like backfire from a hotted up Datsun 120Y but i’d just like to make sure it wasn’t something else.
Does anyone know what was going on ?
