The Moose Jaw Police Service responded to a suspicious object on Monday found by a resident walking in the Wakamow Valley area.

Because of the nature of the object, the Moose Jaw Police Services had assistance from the RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit as a precaution and found the object was not a threat to the public.

Police say the object was "of rudimentary design" and was potentially combustible. Police don't believe any person or property was a target because it was found abandoned in an open area.

The police are reminding residents that using combustible products for any reason, including entertainment, can be dangerous and potentially violate municipal, provincial and federal legislation.

If anyone has any information about the suspicious object to contact the Moose Jaw Police Service at 306-694-7600, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or use the P3Tips app.
