Wife of man charged at Pearson says IED in suitcase was in fact an alarm clock
Do you remember the 'major security breach' last week that kept passengers of a United Airlines flight grounded at Pearson?
There are some new details about the case today.
The wife of a 58 year old man who was taken into custody claims it was all a mistake that he was never carrying a mock improvised explosive device.
She says it was an alarm clock that didn't even look like a bomb, more like a robot.
She claims he told security at the airport before boarding the flight what was in his bag.
Joseph Galaska was charged with a count of mischief after the device was found the luggage in the pre-clearance area at Pearson.
He was granted $5,000 bail on Friday, but still hasn't been released.
The flight bound for Chicago was held on the tarmac for four hours, during the investigation.
Larry and Avery talk about the special W5 airing this weekend.
