UPDATE AT 11:15am: Police have left the area of Grant St. and Dwyer Ave. in Schumacher, after determining that the information that they were called there for was false.
Timmins Police say the call was about “the use or presence of weapons”.
Part of the area was cordoned off and pedestrian and vehicle traffic were restricted for public safety, but talking to residents of a home on Grant St. determined no validity to the call.
Timmins Police offer assurances that there is no threat to public safety, during an ongoing occurrence in Schumacher.
Few details are being released, other than it’s “in relation to an event that transpired earlier this morning”. Neighbours can come and go as they please.
Police are also asking that you don’t call 9-1-1 for updates. We will have them as they become available here on My Timmins Now Dot Com and Country 93.1.
