The Chief of the Strathroy-Caradoc Police Service will be addressing the public Friday afternoon just two days after the RCMP thwarted a terror plot in the small community.
At this time, police have only stated that the news conference will focus on ‘community concerns’ surrounding the investigation and that Strathroy’s mayor and a representative from the RCMP will also be on hand.
The news conference is expected to begin at 4 p.m. at Strathroy Town Hall. AM980 will carry it live on-air and online as soon as it gets underway.
RCMP officials say they were tipped off by FBI officials to a terror threat in Strathroy early Wednesday morning, leading them to foil a plot by a 24-year-old terror threat to attack an “urban centre” during morning or afternoon rush hour.
Aaron Driver died in a confrontation with police in the driveway of his sister’s home in Strathroy on Wednesday afternoon as he was reportedly setting out in a cab on his way to London.
