Police in Halifax are trying to track down a man with reputed ties to a well-known local crime figure.

Andrew Jason Hudder, 26, was paroled from prison late last year, but has since disappeared.

There are reports he is an associate of Jimmy Melvin.

Police have issued a nationwide parole warrant for Hudder’s arrest and investigators have been trying to locate him, without success.

They believe Hudder is still living in the Halifax area.

He is described as a white man with brown hair and brown eyes. He is roughly fix-foot-one and 165 pounds.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police.
