A police investigation is underway at a construction site in Metchosin.
Chew Excavating, a division of the Ralmax Group of Companies, was working on the Department of National Defence’s Rocky Point property when military police members closed the site Friday morning.
A Chew employee working at the site confirmed the closure is not related to the company’s work but it is believed to be linked to something found on the property.
