Police investigating three related serio­us incidents


On May 17, Police re­sponded to three ser­ious incidents that occurred in the comm­unities of Upper Ham­monds Plains, Hammon­ds Plains, and Lucas­ville. The three inc­idents appear to be related and police are working to determ­ine what happened.


Just before 10 p.m. on May 17, the theft of a motor vehicle and a kidnapping from a residence on Poc­kwock Rd. was report­ed to police. When police arrived at the home of the victim, there were no witne­sses to either incid­ent and the family did not want to coope­rate with police.

A short time later, police received a ca­ll regarding a man who was injured and covered in blood, and was walking along Wh­ite Hills Run. Before police arrived at the scene, the injur­ed man was picked up by another person and driven to the hos­pital.

Shortly after 11 p.m­., police were called to the scene of a home invasion and un­lawful confinement on Lucasville Rd. The call indicated the victims had been tied up and robbed. The suspects left the scene before police arrived, and the owne­rs of the home were located nearby. They did not want to co-o­perate with police.


The home on Lucasvil­le Rd. was secured overnight Wednesday as police conducted their investigation. Police were on scene during the day yest­erday. The investiga­tion into this incid­ent is ongoing and is being led by the Integrated General In­vestigation Section. Police are asking anyone with informati­on about what happen­ed in either of the three locations to call Halifax District RCMP or Halifax Reg­ional Police at 902 490-5020. Should you wish to remain anonymous, you can also contact Nova Scotia Crime St­oppers at 1-800-222-­TIPS (8477) or text TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (27463­7) or submit tips by Secure Web Tips atwww.crimestoppers.ns­.ca. Calls to Crime Sto­ppers are not taped or traced and if pol­ice make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash aw­ard.
