Toronto police say a suspect wanted in a mischief investigation has been arrested after syringes and “other paraphernalia” were found at a midtown elementary school.
According to a statement issued by police Tuesday evening, officers said the incident happened at Eglinton Junior Public School, located at the corner of Mount Pleasant Road and Eglinton Avenue East, at around 10 a.m.
The statement said a man was seen by members of a community safety team leaving the package of items by the school before leaving the area on the dark-coloured bicycle.
Investigators released an image of the suspect being sought in connection with the investigation and on Wednesday said an arrest had been made as a result of tips to Crime Stoppers. The accused’s identity was not immediately released.
Officers said there is no threat to public safety.
