Police say earlier Tuesday afternoon, the criminal investigation division and the special enforcement team executed a search warrant at a residence on Essex Street.
During the search, investigators say they discovered suspected explosives inside the residence. A portion of the road was shut down as a precaution and some neighboring residents were evacuated.
Explosives disposal crews arrived around 6:45 p.m. to safely remove the suspected explosives.
The road has since been re-opened and all residents have been allowed to return home.
The investigation is ongoing and police will be on scene throughout the evening. Police say no arrests have been made thus far.
