Three men in custody following a string of incidents in Digby, Nova Scotia

Digby, Nova Scotia – A string of incidents in Digby County has resulted in the arrest of three men by the RCMP yesterday.

The incidents began on July 8 in Weymouth with a person calling police when they discovered their vehicle had been damaged by someone firing a gun at it. Following that, in the early morning hours of July 10 in Weymouth, a man broke into a liquor store and stole several bottles of liquor. Later that day, as the RCMP were investigating these incidents , they learned the men involved were at a residence in Weymouth Mills area. Police attended and the men barricaded themselves in the home.

Due to the circumstances, the RCMP Emergency Response Team and Crisis Negotiators Teams were called to assist with the situation. After several hours, all three men were arrested without incident. The men are in custody and will be remanded pending their court appearance tomorrow in Digby Provincial Court.

Digby RCMP investigators believe all the incidents to be related and the parties are known to one another. The incidents were not random acts.

The investigation is ongoing.
