Police on Thursday arrested a 40-year-old man suspected of sending a threatening note along with a toy gun to Minister-without-Portfolio Bennie Begin earlier this week.



The man was arrested when he came to a police station to report that his ID card had been stolen, and an officer noticed that his handwriting was identical to the one in the letter.



Police say the man has admitted to sending the letter.
