RCMP asking for help to identify persons of interest

September 25, 2019, Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia…Halifax District RCMP is investigating a suspicious circumstance and is asking for help to identify a man and a girl who visited a horse stable on Conrad Rd. in Lawrencetown on September 20. Police wish to speak with the man and check on the girl’s well-being.

At approximately 6 p.m., an older man and a girl approximately seven to 10 years old arrived at the stable in a van. The girl walked around the stables and spoke with staff. The man stayed inside the vehicle during this time. After speaking with staff, the girl returned to the van. Staff approached the van and asked the man to leave. The vehicle then left the area.

The man is described as a thin, older white man with long grey hair. He was wearing thick rimmed glasses and a black ball cap. The girl is described as having red hair and freckles. She was wearing a purple velvet riding helmet and was carrying a small riding crop.

The vehicle is described as a full-size older model (possibly 1992) black van. It was rusty and had paint peeling off.

The girl and the man were reported to have visited the same stable previously, between six to 12 months ago. They may frequent other horse stables.

Anyone with information about either of these people is asked to contact Halifax District RCMP at 902-490-5020 or 1-800-803-RCMP (7267). Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca, or use the P3 Tips App.
