A hold and secure order at Toronto police headquarters on College Street has been lifted after crews detonated a suspicious package that was left outside the entrance to the building on Thursday afternoon.

The package was found resting on a planter immediately outside the building at around 1:15 p.m.

Following the discovery of the package, police released surveillance camera images which showed a suspect placing the package on the planter. The suspect was then taken into custody shortly before 4 p.m., police say.

It is not clear what charges, if any, that suspect will face.

Police spokesperson Meaghan Gray tells CP24 that the investigation into the package is still ongoing.

β€œThe front doors are still blocked off – that is where the primary investigation is taking place – but the back doors have been opened,” Gray said.

Police had closed College Street between Bay and Yonge streets as part of the investigation but the roadway reopened at around 4:15 p.m.
