Nova Scotia Man Charged in Woodstock Border Incident
A 21-year-old man from Halifax, Nova Scotia has been charged with obstruction in connection with an incident at the Woodstock-Houlton border crossing last Friday.
On October 26 at around 10:15 a.m., members of the New Brunswick RCMP responded to a suspicious vehicle that had stopped between the Canada and U.S. border crossings. Officials say two men inside the car were refusing to communicate with Canada Border Services Agency officials or police.
The two men were taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection about six hours later, after they drove their vehicle towards the Houlton border crossing.
Bailey Roy was returned to Canadian custody on Sunday, October 28. He appeared in Woodstock Provincial Court on Monday. RCMP say Roy has been remanded into custody and will return to court on Thursday, November 1 at 9:30 a.m.
A second person, a 22-year-old man from Middle Sackville, N.S., remains in U.S. custody.
The investigation is ongoing.
