Spa Springs man and woman charged with theft, drug and firearms offences

A 42-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman have been charged with theft, firearm and drug related offences after report of a scrap metal theft in South Williamston.

Bridgetown RCMP say officers responded to the reported theft on Highway 201 at about 11 a.m. on November 1.

Police say the pair of suspects had fled the scene and had driven to a home on Nictaux Road, in Nictaux.

RCMP say when they arrived in Nictaux, the suspects were arrested without incident, and when they searched the suspect vehicle, they discovered the stolen scrap metal, methamphetamine, and a loaded and unsafely stored firearm.

Police say they also recovered stolen property related to a previous theft from the vehicle, including personal identification, laptops and a computer tablet.

RCMP say a search warrant was executed at a home earlier today in relation to the investigation, where officers recovered methamphetamine, hydromorphone, more firearms and stolen property.

Daniel Roger Jodoin and Shannon Corrinee Lee Jodoin, both of Spa Springs, have each been charged with one count of theft under $5,000, two counts of possession of stolen property, 6 counts of unsafe storage of a firearm, 12 counts of failure to comply with an undertaking/recognizance, two counts of break and enter, 2 counts of possession of controlled substance, and 4 counts of possession of a weapon contrary to order. 

Both of the accused have been remanded in custody with a court appearance scheduled in Digby Provincial Court on November 29.
