Auckland police have confirmed that a controlled detonation carried out in central Auckland was not linked to Friday’s attack in Christchurch.

According to police Superintendent Karyn Malthus, authorities were notified of an incident where two bags were left unattended on the city’s Galway Street shortly after 5pm.

“Cordons were put in place around the immediate area as a precaution and the Defense Force was notified. A short time ago Defense Force personnel carried out a controlled explosion of the bags as a precautionary measure and the matter has been resolved,” said Malthus.

“Police can confirm the bags were not suspicious and contained scaffolding equipment,” she added.
