Halifax District RCMP have arrested a man and a woman for property crime offences in Upper Tantallon yesterday morning.
At 7:45 a.m. yesterday, RCMP received a complaint of suspicious persons on Westwood Blvd. in Tantallon. A home owner had returned home and observed a car near their driveway. A female in the vehicle honked when she saw the home owner. A man was then seen walking away from the back of the house. The home owner confronted the man who said he was looking for an address for a Kijiji purchase. The home owner called police with a description of the individuals and the vehicle.
Police located the vehicle and two individuals shortly after and conducted a traffic stop on High Timber Dr. in Upper Tantallon. The man could not produce identification and upon exiting his vehicle, police noticed a break and enter tool in his back pocket.

Both individuals were arrested without incident. The man has also been identified as a suspect involved in the fraudulent use of stolen credit cards which occurred on September 28 in Halifax.
