A 42-year-old man has been charged with communicating a bomb threat following an evacuation at St Mary’s Wharf police station in Derby yesterday.
Piotr Gapsinki of Bembridge Drive, Derby, will appear before magistrates today.
The station was evacuated as a precaution at around 12.40pm on Friday, August 17 after a member of the public took a package that we believed to be suspicious into the enquiry office.
Explosive Ordinance Division attended and the package was later destroyed via a controlled explosion.
The road on which the station is located, Prime Parkway, was closed for around two hours as a result of the incident.
We are grateful for the patience shown by representatives of businesses in the area while we resolved the situation.
