Bomb threat at 24 Sussex Drive

Police detain man for questioning

A Quebec man is in custody after Ottawa police responded to a bomb threat targeting the prime minister’s official residence at 24 Sussex Drive. Police received a call at 1:30 am on Monday, but found nothing after searching the residence. The call was traced to a residence in Gatineau, where a 35-year-old man refused to cooperate with police and allegedly threw a rollerblade at them before being taken into custody. The RCMP said that was “no immediate threat to the prime minister or his family.”
