January 13, 2014 - 2:08 PM

KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Bomb technicians from Vancouver are on their way to the RCMP detachment in Kamloops after two women brought in a suspicious package.

RCMP Cpl. Grant Learned says the item appears to be some sort of incendiary device that could cause a small explosion.

The two women found it at the basement of a home where they are tenants with other residents.

Learned says the RCMP detachment has not been evacuated, but the area around it has been cordoned off.

A nearby daycare has also been notified.

Photos of the package have been sent to an explosive demolition team in Vancouver, which is expected to fly out to Kamloops. (CFJC, CHNL)
