Arrest made in connection with bomb threats at Toronto subway stations: police
An arrest has been made in connection with a series of bomb threats made at Toronto subway stations last week, police confirm.
According to a news release issued by police Tuesday, between April 8 and April 10 a man called TTC staff and made threats about a bomb at either York Mills or Eglinton subway stations.
At around 11:30 p.m. on April 10, police say another phone call was received by TTC staff relating to a bomb threat at York Mills Station.
A short time later, police say a man fitting the suspect description was located by officers at Eglinton Station.
Investigators say Aaron Finkler, a 54-year-old Toronto resident, was arrested in connection with the threats.
He has been charged with five counts of public mischief and five counts of endangering life.
Police say he appeared in court yesterday but it is unclear if he remains in custody.
According to investigators, officers have concluded the investigation and believe that there was never a real threat to public safety.
