UPDATE: White powder at Surrey Tax Centre harmless
Surrey RCMP and Surrey Fire Hazmat members have determined that a white powder found at the Surrey Taxation Centre Friday morning was benign and poses no immediate health threat.
Emergency personnel were called out to the 9700-block of King George Boulevard Friday morning after a suspicious powder was discovered near the loading dock at the rear of the building.
At one point there was a report of 19 people contained in a room. They were evacuated from the building, but have now been allowed to re-enter.
