The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service is investigating a suspicious package in the area of Kent Street and Angeline Street. At 10:30 AM this morning, two males were seen placing an item in a field behind a snow bank. The pair left the area in a dark coloured, dirty pick-up truck. The item was partially wrapped in a black garbage bag. There have been no threats and no reason to believe there is any public safety issue. We are, however, investigating the package as suspicious. Out of an abundance of caution, the south sidewalk on Kent Street between Adelaide Street and Angeline Street has been closed to pedestrian traffic, for the investigation.
The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service is requesting any members of the public with information on this incident to contact our police service or Crime Stoppers. We are also asking the persons who placed the article at this location to contact the Kawartha Lakes Police Service immediately. A photograph of the suspicious package can be found below.
