The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are investigating a suspect arrested in Morocco following bomb threats earlier this week in Belgium. She believes this person is also responsible for alerts launched in early November in Ontario.

On November 1, many schools and others public establishments in the province have received threats.

Many schools, both in Northern and Eastern Ontario and in the greater Toronto area, were evacuated that day. Some have even decided not to open their doors.

The messages stated that bombs had been planted on their premises and demanded money in exchange for information on the location of the explosives.

The OPP announced Thursday that its criminal investigation and cybercrime divisions were continuing their investigation into this matter and would work closely with the Belgian police, who arrested the suspect.
