Police Have arrested a man in Halifax bomb threats

Man arrested in Halifax bomb threat


QMI - Police in Halifax have arrested a man in connection with a bomb threat that shut down two charity events earlier this month.
"Yeah, remember the Boston bombing? Well that's what's gonna f---ing happen up here in Halifax," a man said to a 911 operator at 7:45 p.m. on Friday, June 7.
Police located the payphone from which the call was made but couldn't find anyone when they arrived two minutes later.
They searched nearby public areas and didn't find anything suspicious.
The call prompted organizers to cancel that night's Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life and the Arthritis Walk scheduled for the Sunday.
Police said they arrested a 42-year-old man Thursday after responding to a disturbance at Mount Saint Vernon University.

A man allegedly threatened a security officer and said he was the person responsible for the 911 call.

He was taken into custody and is scheduled to appear in court Friday. Police didn't release the man's name.
He faces charges of hoax regarding terrorist activity, uttering threats and breaching court orders.
