A Toronto man has been charged with possession of explosives in what police are calling a G—20 summit—related arrest.

Officers armed with a search warrant went to a home on Tuesday in a wealthy neighbourhood in Toronto’s north end.

Police said in a statement on Wednesday that Byron Sonne, 37, has been charged with several offenses, including possession of explosives, weapons dangerous, intimidating a justice system participant and mischief.

Police spokesman Jillian Van Acker declined to release more details but police say the investigation is part of the ongoing effort to ensure a safe and secure G—20 Summit in Toronto this weekend.

Sonne is scheduled to appear in court later on Wednesday for a bail hearing.
