Halifax police are investigating the second bomb threat to Irving Shipyards in the past month
HALIFAX - Police are looking for a suspect who may have called in a bomb threat to the Halifax Shipyard Wednesday morning.
Const. Pierre Bourdages of the Halifax Regional Police said they received the threat around 10:50 a.m. Police later said they traced the phone call to a pay phone in the area of North and Windsor Streets.
Officers in the area saw at thin man in his twenties at the phone. The suspect was wearing a black hoodie, grey shorts, white sneakers, a black hat and a backpack.
At about 2 p.m., the area was considered clear according to a statement from the Irving Shipyard.
Police also investigated a bomb threat to the shipyards on March 19, but Bourdages said that turned out to be false.
“It’s concerning when we have these kinds of calls, even if they’re real or not,” he said.
