N.S. police arrest man wanted on Canada-wide warrant during traffic stop

AMHERST, N.S.—Police in Nova Scotia say they have arrested a 33-year-old man who was wanted on a Canada-wide arrest warrant.

Christopher McKay was arrested during a traffic stop in Amherst, N.S., shortly after 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Amherst police say they recognized McKay, who was a passenger in the vehicle.

The Pictou County resident evaded officers late Friday when he fled from a home in Trenton, N.S., about 150 kilometres east of Amherst.

Police say McKay will face additional weapons and drug charges after a loaded firearm and drugs were found during his arrest.

McKay had been wanted for an alleged parole violation.
