A 34-year-old man from Borden, Sask. has been arrested after threatening Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over social media earlier this year.
It started in March when New Brunswick Mounties notified the RCMP National Security Enforcement Section about alleged threats which were linked to Saskatchewan.
Derek Hurrell was pulled over near Borden and arrested without incident on Wednesday.
He’s being charged with one count of uttering threats.
Hurrell made his first court appearance on Thursday, and he’s set back in court next week.
According to RCMP, this is the second charge laid in the past 10 months that involved evidence obtained by social media.
Mounties remind the public that they do not take these investigations lightly, no matter who the victim is.
