Police evacuated residents in Montreal’s gay village after drugs and a stick of dynamite were found in an apartment building.
Locals were left waiting outside in the cold last night (25 November) while officers investigated the findings at an apartment in de Maisonneuve Boulevard and Panet Street.
According to Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), police were called to the home at 9.30pm and didn’t leave until 5am after struggling to remove the explosives.
Three people were inside the apartment at the time, including two men aged 22 and 28, and one 25-year-old woman.
They were all known to police who will interview them later today (26 November).
