Did something happen in the western suburb this evening?

I was visiting a friend in the Hillside area this evening. The Melton Highway had heavy traffic and it seems like all vehicles were diverted from the Calder and Melton Highway junction. Did not hear anything on the radio. Saw a police helicopter in the air, and police cordoned off the entire junction. Had to make a huge detour.

Does anyone out there know what happened?

    Apparently there was some “bomb hoax” thing around that area heading towards Melton.

    Heard it on the news earlier, they closed off the streets and had a robotic detonation unit etc… I don’t remember much other than that.

    Can’t find any other news on it right now though. But that’s what I recall from the night’s news on tv.

    I think it’s “playing on” the current situation, where we all woke up and heard about the targetting of Melbourne in a terrorist type video shown on ABC News America.
