Canadian Authorities Looking For Man Who Bought Huge Amounts Of Fertilizer
June 9, 2010
Canada (ChattahBox) – Canadian authorities are looking for a man who purchased a large amount of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, in high enough amounts that they believe he could be attempting to build a bomb.
According to a spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a man bought 60 25kg bags of the fertilizer from a store, with employees misidentifying him as another frequent shopper.
They failed to get his name, despite laws requiring it for the purchase of ammonium nitrate, and called police when they realized their mistake.
With the G-20 summit just two weeks from now, to be held in Ontario (also the city the fertilizer was purchased), police fear possible bomb threat.
However, they have pointed out that there is so far no evidence – other than the purchase – to indicate one is imminent. They believe it may be a farmer, but want to locate the man who double check.
