N.S. man wanted on provincewide arrest warrant


The Nova Scotia RCMP is searching for a man wanted on a provincewide arrest warrant.

Police say they have made several unsuccessful attempts to find Kyle Gordon Joseph Buffett.

The 20-year-old is wanted on multiple charges, including:

  • assault with a weapon
  • theft of vehicle
  • possession of property obtained by crime
  • failure to comply with release order
  • breach of probation
  • failure to comply with sentence or disposition under the Youth Criminal Justice Act
  • driving while disqualified

Buffett is described by police as five-foot-three and 170 pounds with dark brown hair and brown eyes.

He is known to frequent West Hants County, Kings County, and Annapolis County, according to an RCMP news release.

The RCMP said in a post on X Wednesday night that Kings District RCMP attempted to execute an arrest warrant on Rock Road in Canaan, Kings County, in their search for Buffett.

They said he was last seen riding a dirt bike on Highway 101 eastbound in the Coldbrook area.

Police did not believe Buffett to be armed, though they asked people in the area to lock their vehicles and not leave keys inside.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked not to approach him and call Kings District RCMP at 902-679-5555 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
