RCMP ‘D’ Division/GRC Division ‘D’:
For Immediate Distribution
Suspicious Substance Found
November 21, 2007
Saskatchewan Roughrider football practice was delayed on Wednesday for nearly two hours at Taylor Field. One of the players, while on his way to the locker room, happened to look down and notice a suspicious looking, unknown white powdery substance on the practice field.
The head coach immediately suspended practice while the RCMP were called in to investigate. After a complete field analysis, the RCMP determined that the white substance, unknown to the players, was the goal line.
Practice was resumed when the RCMP decided that the team would not be likely to encounter the substance again.
