Letter-bombing suspect arrested in Toronto
by UPI

TORONTO - Police say they found three bombs in a car trunk when they arrested a Toronto man suspected of sending three letter bombs, officials said Friday.

The bombs were detonated after being transported to a disposal area, The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported. The road was closed while they were moved.

Adel Arnaout was arrested late Thursday. He faces charges that include three counts of attempted murder, three counts of intending to cause an explosion and possession of explosives.

On Aug. 11, a Toronto man was injured when he opened what proved to be a letter bomb. Two similar bombs were sent to a Toronto real estate lawyer and a home renovator in Guelph who called police, finding the packages suspicious.

Deputy Police Chief Tony Warr, speaking at a news conference Friday, said that the bombs found in the car trunk used similar technique to the earlier ones. He said that the bomber appears to have had a personal grudge.

Arnaout was arrested at an Esso service station in Toronto.
