Toronto: Muslim leaves suspicious packages at subway station on 2 successive days

Toronto police have one man in custody and Broadview station has reopened Tuesday morning after a suspicious package was found for the 2nd straight day, disrupting the commute for thousands of TTC passengers again.  

Special TTC constables found the package at around 6:15 am and police say they believe it was "deliberately placed" at the station. Toronto police’s Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear team was at the scene and determined the package wasn’t dangerous.  

This comes one day after another suspicious package was removed from Broadview station, that closed the area for over 4 hours Monday morning.  

Kamal Badri, 53, of Toronto, was wanted in connection with Monday’s incident. Douglas-Cook confirmed he was arrested Tuesday morning. She said he's being investigated for both incidents
