Man arrested in connection to threats to Surrey Councillor and Prime Minister

SURREY RCMP announced on Thursday that a man has been arrested in connection to alleged threats that were made toward Surrey Councillor Jack Hundial and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

On November 23, Surrey RCMP received a report of threats of violence that were made toward Hundial and Trudeau. The Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit (GIU) launched an investigation and on November 25, a suspect was arrested for two counts of uttering threats.

Later that day, the suspect, a 42-year old man from Surrey, was released on conditions with a court date scheduled for the new year. The man was not previously known to police.  

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.

Hundial, a former RCMP officer who is against a Surrey municipal police force, had told the media that he received an online threat through social media directed at him to shoot both him and Trudeau.
