Suspended Driver Arrested in Cole Harbour with Stolen Sea-Doo

Halifax District RCMP has charged a man in relation to a vehicle stop in Cole Harbour where stolen property was recovered.

Yesterday, at approximately 12:50 p.m., Halifax District RCMP officers observed a man, known to operate vehicles with a suspended driver’s licence, near Cole Harbour Rd.

RCMP officers completed a vehicle stop on the GMC Sierra which was towing a trailer carrying a Sea-Doo. Officers learned that the truck’s registration was expired and confirmed that the man’s drivers’ licence was suspended. At the scene, officers observed that the trailer had no licence plate or VIN and that the Sea-Doo’s hull identification number was missing but matched the description of property recently reported stolen.

The driver, a 41-year-old Eastern Passage man, was safely arrested.

Christopher Simon Barry, 41, has been charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. Summary offence tickets are anticipated to be issued in relation to the motor vehicle act infractions.

Barry was held into custody and is scheduled to appear today in Dartmouth Provincial Court.
