A man sought by police for stealing items from a Mic Mac Mall jewellery store has been arrested and charged.
On March 29, 2015, a man was in the jewellery store looking at a gold chain as well as loose diamonds when he suddenly fled from the store with the items without paying for them. Police released pictures of the man and the vehicle in which he fled on May 4.
On May 13, officers assigned to the Halifax District RCMP Street Crime Enforcement Unit arrested the accused as he attempted to sell stolen items at a pawn shop on Windmill Road in Dartmouth. He was taken into custody and was also found in possession of a vehicle that was stolen from the province of Québec in early April.
Forty-two-year-old Marc-Joseph Pellerin of Sainte Marie de Kent, New Brunswick, appeared in Halifax Provincial Court on May 14. In relation to this matter, he faces charges of theft over $5,000, possession of stolen property, breach of undertaking and trafficking in property obtained by crime. He remains at the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility and will return to court on May 26.
