The tripping of an automatic alarm is to blame for a lockdown at Quinte West City Hall Tuesday morning.
At 10 a.m., a dozen emergency vehicles along with heavily armed OPP officers descended on the municipal headquarters at 7 Creswell Drive.
Sources inside the building at the time were unaware of the cause of the lockdown.
Inspector Michael Reynolds, detachment commander of the Quinte West OPP says no one was injured in the incident.
“We are investigating to see if the alarm was set off by a person or if it was a technical glitch.”
The scene was cleared around 11 a.m.
