When police access is permitted, investigators will work to gather the necessary information to support the investigation.
The OPP is requesting the public to continue to come forward with information regarding the June 23 collapse of the roof of the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake.
Members of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) are asking anyone who believes they have information that may be important to this investigation to contact the dedicated information line at 1-855-677-4636 (1-855-OPP-INFO).
It’s important to note that, until the police investigators are able to complete their examination of the mall structure, the building will remain sealed to preserve and protect the scene, police warn. Mall tenants and merchants and the public are reminded to refrain from trying to access the building for any property regardless of its location.
Once the police examination and analysis has been completed, a plan will then be developed to address all requests from mall tenants and others to retrieve their property from the site.
OPP members from the East Algoma Detachment and OPP North East Region continue to ensure the site remains secure. The OPP will continue to provide media updates with regard to this investigation as information becomes available.
Meanwhile, Sudbury MPP and Minister of Northern Development and Mines Rick Bartolucci has announced he will make an “important announcement related to the economic revitalization of Elliot Lake’s business community” July 11.
