Youths get probation in Bombardier bomb threat case
Two juveniles charged in connection with a bomb threat at Thunder Bay's Bombardier plant have been placed on probation.
The 16-year-old boys were charged with Uttering Threats to Destroy Property, after calling in a bomb threat at the plant to emergency officials and forcing the evacuation of the plant late last year.
The pair were identified through video from a security camera near the phone booth where the bomb threat was called in.
A member of the public recognized the teens in photos shown by the media.
The Dec. 9, 2011 incident, which happened midday, sent more than a 1,000 assembly-line workers and office staff into the cold air — many without their coats on and many without their lunches.
The youths were arrested in January.
