North Okanagan Teen Arrested for Threatening Montreal Airport
RCMP say an Enderby youth is facing charges after he allegedly made threats to the Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport, in Montreal, Quebec.
The North Okanagan RCMP are involved in the investigation, after being notified by Montreal authorities. Police say over a month long period, several false bomb threats were allegedly made to the international airport via the internet. Investigators were lead to an Enderby residence where a 16 year old was arrested at his family’s home.
“During the search warrant, investigators seized multiple electronic devices from the home that will be further examined by police,” says RCMP Cst. Kelly Brett. “Threats of this nature are taken very seriously by authorities and the consequences for this youth could be life altering”.
The 16 year old is facing possible charges in relation to conveying false messages and harassing communications. He's been released from custody to appear at a later court date.
