Police find pipe bomb outside Tillicum SilverCity theatre

Saanich police were on scene at Tillicum Centre Thursday morning after an employee at the mall's movie theatre spotted a pipe bomb outside the building.

Fortunately, the device had already been detonated.

The bomb was found shortly after 10 a.m., but police say it will be difficult to tell when exactly it was set off.

The building was not damaged, and according to police, the bomb "would have posed minimal risk to the public."
