ACT Policing executed a search warrant on a residence in Ngunnawal early yesterday evening (April 18) where on arrival they located a suspicious package.
ACT Policing General Duties members cordoned the area and requested the Specialist Response Group (SRG) Bomb Response Team to attend.
As a precaution residents in the area were notified and informed by police to evacuate whilst the SRG Bomb Response Team rendered the package safe at around 5.15am.
