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.”
