Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) says that a suspect arrested in Morocco in connection with bomb threats in Belgium now faces charges in similar incidents in Ontario. The suspect faces six charges.

On November 1, several schools and other public facilities received threatening messages indicating that bombs had been placed on their premises. The threats also included a demand for money in exchange for details of the alleged explosives. No explosives were ever found.

An investigation was opened by the Criminal Investigation Department in close collaboration with the PPO cybercrime investigation team and the Belgian police. An arrest warrant was issued following the investigation.

The 45-year-old man faces six counts of uttering threats, mischief and extortion.
