After Monday’s incident at the Regina International Airport, where people had to evacuate from the second floor and flights were delayed, because of a suspicious item found at a security checkpoint, an argument has started.
The woman who was taken into custody, but not charged, Tracey Britton, says she was angry over the handling of the situation, adding she wasn’t sure what was wrong with the electronic device, and is demanding an apology from the Regina Police Service.
However the Police department believe their actions were in the right, saying the safety of everyone is their number one goal, and after multiple checks of the peculiar item, which turned out to be a laptop, it raised alarm bells.
The bomb squad was brought in to remove the item and did so successfully, and the laptop was destroyed.
But the hard drive was intact and it’s in the hands of Regina police, which they say Britton came come and pick it up.
