A bomb threat called in to a business results in arrest.
Just after 1 p.m. on Thursday, Halifax District RCMP responded to a bomb threat at a business on Hammonds Plains Rd. in Upper Tantallon. The business was evacuated and searched by the RCMP Police Dog Services and RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit. Nothing suspicious was located.
The investigation resulted in the arrest of a 49-year-old man from Bedford, after it was determined that his caller identification was displayed when the threat was made over the telephone. Halifax Regional Police located the man later in the day where he was taken in to custody without incident. He is facing charges for Criminal Harassment, Uttering Threats and False Information. He was later released and will appear in Halifax Provincial Court on February 27, 2018 at 9:30 a.m.
The investigation is continuing.
