Police have charged a man for fleeing a Dartmouth facility where he was under court order to remain.
At approximately 9 a.m. on May 26, police received information that Joshua James Turner, 35, had left the Jamieson Community Correctional Center located on Morris Drive in Dartmouth. He has been deemed a high-risk to reoffend relating to sexual and violent offences.
A media release was issued asking for the public’s assistance locating him and information from a citizen led officers to arrest Turner at approximately 2:40 p.m. in Dartmouth without incident.
Turner is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court today to face a charge of breaching a long-term supervision order.
