UPDATE – RCMP Investigating Social Media Threat to Vancouver International Airport

December 23rd, 2015 ~ No Comments

RICHMOND, BC – On December 21, 2015, Vancouver International Airport officials notified the RCMP of threats directed to them via social media.

Officers from the RCMP Technological Crimes Unit and YVR Detachment have been working with their colleagues from the United States, specifically from the Philadelphia Police Department Homeland Security Unit.

“We have determined that the social media based threats had originated from a geographic location within the United States. At that point, we coordinated with our colleagues at the Philadelphia Police Department Homeland Security Unit. We are currently working alongside their investigators. A 16-year old male is currently under investigation. The social media threats were not deemed credible. The safety of Canadians and travellers alike at YVR is always taken very seriously,” says Corporal Dennis Hwang.
