Shelter-in-place order lifted in Trenton, N.S.; 1 suspect still at large
HALIFAX -- A shelter-in-place order has been lifted in the Trenton, N.S. area after police spent early Saturday morning searching for two suspects.
Just after midnight Saturday, New Glasgow police sent out a tweet asking residents in the Trenton area to lock their doors, and tobe aware of an ongoing search.
According to a news release from police, the search began after officers responded to a home on Main Street in Trenton to arrest 33-year-old Christopher McKay, who was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for parole suspension. When police arrived, McKay, along with a second man, Ronald Jamieson, fled from the scene.
Multiple units were called in to assist with the search.
Just before 2 a.m., New Glasgow police sent another tweet stating Jamieson had been arrested on Main Street and is currently in police custody.
An alert was also sent out to local residents in Pictou County advising of the ongoing search, and to keep their doors and windows locked.
McKay is described as a white man, 5'7'', 200 pounds, with short hair, and neck and face tattoos.
Police are still reminding residents in Pictou County to stay vigilant, and if they spot McKay, to call 911 and not confront him.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
