A teen from Endery, B.C. is facing possible charges after allegedly making threats to the Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport, located in Montreal, Que.

The North Okanagan RCMP said in a news release Friday that officers were first notified by Montreal authorities that alleged bomb threats had been made against the airport. Over a month-long period, several false bomb threats were made to the international airport over the internet, police said.

Investigators were lead to an Enderby home where a boy, 16, was arrested.
