Around 10:30 p.m. on Friday, May 5, officers with the Perth County Ontario Provincial Police were called to an address on Mitchell Road South in Listowel that was the subject of a bomb threat.
"The investigation has confirmed the bomb threat as a hoax," police said in a media release issued Monday.

The man is to appear in court in Stratford on June 12.
