Man wanted on outstanding arrest warrants from across Canada arrested in Pictou County

A man wanted on twelve outstanding arrest warrants from across Canada is in custody after a shoplifting incident in Pictou.

RCMP responded to a business around 10 p.m. on Friday and say the suspect had fled the area in a vehicle.

61-year-old Gordon John Doughty was located and arrested in the Pine Tree area later that evening after officers were called to the scene of a single-vehicle accident.

Police say the 2000 Jaguar S-Type was stolen from British Columbia.

The outstanding arrest warrants are in relation to over thirty charges of a similar nature dating back to 2013 in P.E.I., New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and B.C.
