West Shore RCMP tape off Langford law office sent suspicious substance last month

No confirmation as to why police were back at Hemminger Law Group Monday afternoon

Just over a month after a Langford law office was locked down after a suspicious white substance was delivered to its door, West Shore RCMP were seen at the Veterans Memorial Parkway address again Monday with police tape blocking the entrance.

Hemminger Law Group, a family, personal injury, estate and criminal law firm with locations in Greater Victoria and Abbotsford received an anonymous threatening letter Sept. 7 containing a white substance that resulted in five people being decontaminated and sent to hospital for further testing.

On Sept. 12, West Shore RCMP said the substance was found to be “at least partially flour.”
