Penticton RCMP along with Penticton Fire Department and BC Ambulance Services attended to a residence at Sun Leisure Mobile Home Park where a package was left near a residence by an unknown individual. The 72 year old female resident opened the package causing a detonation of an explosive nature, startling the woman but resulting in minor injuries only. The woman was treated and released on scene by paramedics.
The BC RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit as well as a Post Blast Forensic Investigator are en route to examine the scene.
The Penticton RCMP General Investigation Section is leading the investigation by interviewing witnesses and neighbours and canvassing for video surveillance in the area.
