3 seniors arrested in plot to attack armoured cars



MONTREAL - Police arrested three men in their 60s of plotting to attack cash-carrying armoured vehicles.

The four-month police investigation into the alleged imminent attack led officers Saturday night to a social housing complex in the city's south end where police said they found a highly dangerous explosive device.

Police performed two controlled explosions on the suspected bomb and said they neutralized the package.
Police said the three suspects, aged 62, 63 and 65, are known to them.

The three are scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.

Alain Bourre, who said he lived in the building where police found the explosive, told QMI Agency that one of the suspects was his neighbour.

"He was very nice, polite, looked in good shape for his age," Bourre said, adding he never thought the suspect was up to trouble.

Police would not say where the three suspects were arrested or give details about how the suspects are known to them.
