Threats On Facebook Lead To Arrest Of Teen & Other Crimes

A few items from the police blotter today--a 26 year old man was arrested on Broad Street after breaking into a home and passing out on the couch. He's being held in provincial court to answer to charges.

Threats on social media are nothing to be taken lightly, as a 17 year old girl from one of the uptown high schools has learned.The teen was been arrested after making threats via Facebook. She will be appearing in youth court at a later date.

And at around 4pm yesterday police received a call to the Trade and Convention Center area about some teenagers who had been sprayed with a pepper-spray like substance. When they arrived, several teenagers were showing symptoms of having been sprayed and made their way to the hospital.

Police say this wasn't a random act and they have a suspect in mind.
