A man whose information was included as part of a list of people with outstanding warrants has been arrested.
In January, HRM Partners in Policing released a High Risk Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) Outstanding Warrant List to the public. The list contained nine people who have warrants for their arrest and are believed to reside in HRM. On March 30, Joshua Christopher Benoit was arrested in Hamilton, Ontario. Today, officers from the team are traveling to Ontario to pick him up and are scheduled to return tomorrow. It is unclear whether Benoit will appear in court tomorrow or after the long weekend.
The Outstanding Warrant Wanted List is available on the Internet at www.halifax.ca/police/HeatList. HRM Partners in Policing remind citizens not to approach these individuals or try to take matters into their own hands. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact Halifax Regional Police at 490-5016, RCMP at 244-7208 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
