TORONTO (AP) — A Toronto man was charged Wednesday with possession of explosives in what police are calling a G-20 summit-related arrest.

Officers armed with a search warrant went to a million-dollar-plus home in a wealthy neighborhood in Toronto's north end to charge Byron Sonne, 37, with several offenses, including possession of explosives, dangerous weapons, intimidating a justice system participant and mischief, police said in a statement Wednesday.

Police spokesman Jillian Van Acker declined to release more details but police say the investigation is part of the ongoing effort to

A Toronto man has been charged with explosives and weapons offences in what police are calling a G20-related arrest. Police searched a house at 58 Elderwood Dr., in Toronto's upscale Forest Hill neighbourhood, just after noon on Tuesday. Byron Sonne, 37, was charged with:

* Intimidation of a justice system participant by threat.

* Intimidation of a justice system participant by watch and beset.

* Mischief.

* Attempted mischief.

* Possession of explosives for an unlawful purpose.

* Possession of dangerous weapons.

Police have released few details about the case. Sonne was scheduled to make a court appearance on Wednesday afternoon. Robert Beggs, who knows Sonne and who spoke to CBC News, said Sonne was a member of a group called the Toronto Area Security Klatch, a group of security professionals who share knowledge and research on matters related to IT security. The group meets monthly, and Beggs told CBC News that Sonne has made presentations to the group on several occasions.

Beggs described Sonne as an independent online security specialist. Beggs also said he believes Sonne is a licensed private investigator. Sonne owns and operates a business called Halvdan Solutions, which he registered on Nov. 28, 2008. He is the sole owner, and it deals in computer and info technology services and solutions. The Forest Hill house remained cordoned off on Wednesday and a number of specialty police squads, including the emergency task force and the bomb squad, have been working at the house.

More to come on this I'm sure...


Basically Sonne is a well respected security expert...

The story goes on to say

Before starting Halvdan, Sonne was a senior systems specialist at Webkinz. His jobs before that, with nCircle Network Security and FSC Internet Corp. put him in two top companies in the field, Beggs said.

Sonne was charged with intimidation of a justice system participant by threat, intimidation of justice system participant by watch and beset, mischief interfere with property, attempt mischief, possession of explosive for unlawful purpose and weapons dangerous.


Could this be a legit arrest or because of something he discovered?

This is definitely a strange story, it just seems odd someone of his status would be plotting something for the G20 meetings.

Like you said is this legit or because of something he discovered,

maybe he did find something or had some kind of information about something and he is being set up?

Really?

Nobody on here is interested in this story?

I wish I could change the headline of it.

First post...
Greetings from 'G20ville', Toronto Canada.
Yes, Invisible, I am interested in this, and it does seem a bit odd, especially as this individual is from a higher social strata and respected by early accounts.

Still, early days, and the media here are hungry, as there has been little to report on yet.

The ranging list of charges upon this man sent me on a bit of tour ( I believe it was the strange one, ' Intimidation of a justice system participant by watch and beset') and lo and behold, I ended up at (CAN.) federal bill 'C-46', latest revision 12 Mar 2010.

If anyone wants to view:
www.canlii.org...
C-46 appears to be the source for the 'beset' charge, although it's usually been used in a more domestic sense. Activating the (drop down) index also provides an overview of the many ways one can be dragged through our system if stepping out of line, whether real or perceived, citizen or not.

This case might be new proving ground...who knows. Hopefully, if it's a big over-reaction by someone he may have simply ticked off, he'll be able to successfully defend and not lose his home.

Anyway, thanks for letting me place my comments - this site has always been an interesting source of info.

Does anybody know anything new on this story?

Or at least find it odd this man was possibly plotting something?

The hazardous materials are defined as 5 containers of gasoline. Police say the crude weapons range from a cross bow to a pellet gun and a baseball bat.



OMG, good thing they got Mr. Al Qaeda off the streets before he was able to make his camping trip.




What a pathetic world we live in.

More garbage from the typical Canadian government. This guy did nothing and now his reputation will be destroyed forever because of this BS, of course this is the main tactic that the government uses to eliminate any potential threat.

Honestly I call BS on this whole thing, this story only serves as justification for Fortress Toronto that was deployed for the G20 summit, especially after the criticism of all the POW camp-style fences and security at the Vancouver Olympics. Luckily this guy didn't have a lighter or they probably would have shot him on sight, eh?

What they consider as "weapons" in this article equal an average recreational weekend in the bush here in BC... no wonder why BC rarely gets any international coverage.

Hi everyone,

More stuff, but sure many of you already on it...

Byron Sonne's wife was arrested north of the city this morning at their cottage and charged with the same offenses.
>>Linky thing here, complete with picture of their evil lair of plotting!

This one from the Toronto Star, our main middle class daily:
Worth the read to anyone interested in more of a profile of this guy, YET: I am left after reading it with the sense it's also a 'warning' to anyone thinking of even joking about/challenging this event in any way, shape, or form.)

Wow. I remember when it was boring (and therefore quite free) here

Yes, thank goodness they're getting all those big baddies off the streets here...Apparently it's a beat up old Hyundai that drew attention for looking 'unsafe'. Description of car/contents sounds like one of the many species of Urban Camper we have in TO. So, 'Them' has likely captured a HOMELESS guy living in his CAR.

So I take it they arrested Byron Sonne because of his tweets?

Did they really find any explosives at his home?

Such a strange story, leaving more questions than answers.

I'm probably imagining this, but it seems that the Toronto G20 conspiracy threads that didn't feature videos highlighting violence had a lackluster response. What gives?

I found this story more interesting than the G20 protest videos, I think we all knew the protesters and police were going to get out of hand.

This story came out about a week before the summit meetings, its wrapped in conspiracy and hardly anyone was interested in it.
