HALIFAX — The case of a man whose chemical stockpiles caused police to order evacuations in two cities is in court today.

Christopher Phillips is charged with threatening police officers and possessing a weapon _ the hazardous chemical osmium tetroxide _ for a dangerous purpose.

Phillips was arrested in January in an Ottawa hotel after it was evacuated by police.

Neighbourhoods in Halifax and Grand Desert, N.S., were also evacuated after police found a large collection of chemicals.

Mike Taylor, his lawyer, has said police should have informed the public they knew a stockpile of chemicals that led to the evacuations lacked key bomb ingredients.

An exhibit included an analysis by forensics expert Melanie Brochu, who found that the chemicals police found in Phillips’ cottage didn’t include the ingredients for homemade explosives.
