The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) anti-terrorist unit is on the the trail of the limping man with two missing fingers who purchased 1,500 kilogram of fertilizer.
Limping Man bought sixty 25-kilogram bags of ammonium nitrate fertilizer in Lincoln, Ontario on May 26th. According to this article, 1,500 kilograms of fertilizer is a legitimate amount to purchase for use as fertilizer, but is also enough to build a bomb.
The Globe and Mail describes the man as 50-60 years old, perhaps of European descent, with a limp and two missing fingers on the right hand.
[The limping man] told staff he was buying it on behalf of a regular customer and loaded the fertilizer onto a flatbed trailer…He was pulling the flatbed with an older model maroon or red-coloured minivan.
Anyone who can help police track down the missing fertilizer can call them at 905-688-411, ext. 4208 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
The G20 Summit will meet in Toronto June 25-27, 2010, at an estimated cost to taxpayers of $1 Billion. Lincoln is a little more than an hour’s drive from Toronto. The G-8 Summit is in Huntsville, Ontario at the same time, June 25-27, 2010. It is feared the Summits may be a target.
I think I’d keep my children out of big malls until they find the limping man.
