Montreal police have arrested three people after finding drugs and dynamite in an apartment on the corner of Panet Street and de Maisonneuve Boulevard.

Authorities were called to the apartment building around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night.

"Police officers discovered narcotics and items that were looking like explosives," said Const. Danny Richer.

He said the building was evacuated, and the SWAT team was called in to investigate the nature of the explosives.

It turned out to be a stick of dynamite.
