Just as his trial wrapped up, Toronto police raided the former home of an anti-G20 protester charged as a would-be bomb-maker.
On Wednesday, the police bomb squad removed a container of what they say was explosive materials from an underground backyard "storage magazine" and destroyed it at an isolated location by the waterfront, the National Post reported.
"It was a container," Const. Wendy Drummond told CityNews. "And inside that container were three other containers that were sealed. So we don't know exactly what was in there, but we do have reason to believe the material is dangerous if not explosive."
The house in the upscale Forest Hills neighbourhood was once the home of so-called "G20 Geek" Byron Sonne. His estranged wife still lives there.
Sonne is charged with four counts of possessing explosive substances and one of counselling the commission of mischief not committed. His trial before Ontario Superior Court ended Monday and a verdict is scheduled to be handed down April 23.Read More »from Byron Sonne’s former Toronto backyard raided by bomb squad, a suspicious package removed
