REGINA _ An evacuation was ordered when a man who wanted to dispose of explosives walked into the Regina police station carrying blasting caps and cords.

The man brought the material into the building Sunday afternoon.

Police say the caps posed a serious safety risk and officials ordered part of the station evacuated.

The bomb disposal unit was called in and took the material to an off-site location where it was destroyed.

No one was hurt.

Police are reminding the public that if explosives are discovered, they should be reported to authorities by telephone and should not be transported on city streets.
