Nova Scotia resident wanted on province-wide warrant arrested by DRPS

A Nova Scotia resident wanted on a province-wide warrant has been arrested by the DRPS.

According to the RCMP, Michael Sinton of Upper Brookside was sought after allegedly making threats to harm a woman known to him and threats to harm himself. Police were notified on Nov. 22, 2021.

“Police learned that the man was believed to be in possession of a firearm and had driven into the woods in Nuttby on a green ATV,” a media release reads.

After an extensive search of the Nuttby area, the suspect was not located.

The RCMP continued to investigate the matter and sought assistance from the DRPS.

Sinton was located and arrested without incident on Jan. 13. Two RCMP officers travelled to Oshawa over the weekend to take custody of Sinton and return him to Nova Scotia.

He faces over 30 charges related to intimate partner violence and other criminal code offences, police noted, with a court date set for Jan. 25.
