first_imgThe province’s Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT) has concluded that no charges should be laid against a Halifax Regional Police officer who chased a man trying to escape arrest. On Nov. 7, police responded to a report of shoplifting by a man and woman at the Dartmouth Crossing Wal-Mart. The man had outstanding charges and was arrested by police. As he was taken to the police vehicle, he ran off. A male officer chased him through two parking lots and across two streets. The suspect ran down a bank and jumped from a rock wall, fell and broke his leg. In an interview with SIRT investigators, he acknowledged the police officer was just doing his job. SIRT has concluded the Halifax Regional Police officer was carrying out his duties when he chased the suspect. There are no grounds to consider any charges. The full report is available at sirt.novascotia.ca . SIRT is responsible for investigating all serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia. Investigations are under the direction and control of independent civilian director Ron MacDonald.last_img read more

first_imgPeople can see a 200 million-year-old tooth of a mammal-like reptile this weekend at Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro. This is a sneak peak of a new exhibit opening in June featuring the tooth that was discovered on the shores of the Bay of Fundy. “The tiny tooth is from an animal called Oligokyphus, an ancient ancestor of mammals,” said Tim Fedak, museum director and curator. “It is the first time a fossil like this has been discovered in Nova Scotia, although similar finds have been made in Jurassic-aged rocks in Arizona, China and the United Kingdom.” Summer hours at Fundy Geological Museum start this weekend. The museum will be open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, go to http://fundygeological.novascotia.ca/ .last_img read more
