Langley RCMP tape off the road east of 203 Street, near the Langley City 7-Eleven after a bomb threat was called into the neighbouring office building on Tuesday morning.

Bomb threat was a hoax

Langley RCMP taped off a significant portion of a road around the City 7-Eleven after a bomb threat was called in Tuesday morning.

A bomb threat called into the office building beside the Langley City 7-Eleven brought in police who taped off the area to investigate early Tuesday morning.

By 10 a.m., Langley RCMP determined the threat was a hoax.

“But we have to take all bomb threats seriously and for the protection of the public we had to take all the precautions and clear the building,” said Langley RCMP Sgt. Ravinder Pawar. “We encourage the public to be vigilant and always call police if they see a suspicious package or if a bomb threat is called in.”
