Police conclude investigation into data breach

Halifax Regional Police has concluded its investigation into the data breach that was reported to the police on April 7. After a thorough investigation, the police have determined there to be no grounds to lay charges in the matter.

“This was a high-profile case that potentially impacted many Nova Scotians,” said Superintendent Jim Perrin, Officer-in-Charge of Criminal Investigations Division. “As the investigation evolved, we have determined that the 19-year-old who was arrested on April 11 did not have intent to commit a criminal offence by accessing the information.”
