Suspicious behaviour at Yatala

16 Mar 2019 3:46pm

Police were called to the Yatala Labour Prison at Northfield this afternoon after a report of suspicious behaviour.

About 12.30pm on Saturday 16 March, two men attended the public area of the guardhouse and tried to drop off a package.  They were advised this was against security protocols, but the men dumped the bag and took off from the car park in a vehicle at speed.

Police attended and cordoned off the area.  The bag and contents were inspected and found to be non-suspicious.

There were no reports of injuries.

Inquiries are continuing.
