ATLANTIC BRIEFS DESK firstname.lastname@example.org
A Lower Sackville man found playing a guitar in a New Minas parking lot is facing stolen property charges. In a July 14 release, Kings District RCMP said a complaint of a man playing a guitar outside a vehicle brought police members to the parking lot of a New Minas restaurant before midnight on July 11. Police said they found the suspect in the parking lot. After investigating, police found out the guitar player allegedly possessed a stolen vehicle and property — and had outstanding warrants from Halifax. Cpl. Chris Marshall, an RCMP public information officer, said the 48-year-old man was arrested for possession of stolen property over $5,000 and under $5,000 and breach of a release order. The suspect was transferred into the custody of the Halifax Regional Police to deal with his outstanding warrants. The suspect will appear in Kentville provincial court at a later date.
