A man faces multiple firearm-related charges after Toronto police officers alleged the accused had homemade bombs and a crossbow.
According to a statement issued by the service Wednesday afternoon, officers began their investigation on Monday in the Leslie Street and Queen Street East area. Toronto police tell CityNews that officers were tipped off that someone owned restricted firearms in early January.
Investigators executed search warrants on a vehicle and at an undisclosed address and located airsoft guns and a crossbow in the suspect’s possession, along with five explosive devices, noting two were homemade.
#UPDATE: "If that were to explode, those ball bearings would be catapulted in every direction."
