Who is repeatedly delivering a white-powdered substance in Saskatoon?
Since March 16th – including a hazmat call Thursday morning – there have been suspicious package calls in Saskatoon to these addresses:
- 211 4th Avenue South;
- the Saskatoon Cancer Centre;
- Buena Vista School;
- and an office building at River Landing.
Saskatoon Police say the latest suspicious deliver – 311 21st Street East – is the address for Alexa Emerson’s lawyer Brian Pfefferle.
On November 29th last year, five suspicious packages were dropped off around the city and one of those locations was also the target of the latest round of suspicious package calls Police and Fire have been investigating.
In those five calls from November, initially three people were arrested but police believe a woman named Alexa Emerson hired two people to deliver the packages.
Those two people were released without charges because they didn’t know what was inside the packages.

- Suspicious packages in Saskatoon made up of baking soda, talcum powder
31-year old Alexa Emerson appears in provincial court May 15th for a one day trial. She was charged with five counts each of public mischief, mischief and uttering threats to cause bodily harm.
Police identified the substance in the envelopes from November as baking soda and talcum powder.
The Saskatoon Police Service says the suspicious package discovered Thursday was deemed to be non hazardous. An employee at 311 21st Street East reported receiving a package with a suspicious powder.
Because of the number of incidents, police are advising anyone handling mail to do so with caution.
