Canfan 13 November 2014 3

ACT Policing is investigating a suspicious package located at the front gate of a child care centre in Holder this morning (Thursday, November 13).

About 7.55am, ACT Policing received the report of the suspicious package at the YMCA Early Learning Centre (ELC) on Dixon Drive.

ACT Policing provided a coordinated response and cordoned the area as a standard safety precaution.
Police have evacuated the centre and implemented road closures on Dixon Drive between Mulley Street and Streeton Drive.

Members of the AFP Bomb Response Team are in attendance examining the package.

Parents of children at the YMCA ELC are asked to attend the Montessori School car park on Mulley Street to collect their children.

Please tell me it was a box of soiled nappies that was “rendered safe” by blowing it up.

Dixon Drive was blocked when I drove past this morning. There were a heap of police cars and one of those big police trucks.
