Truro man pleads not guilty to attempted theft of a cat

Stephen Gregory Tynes has pleaded not guilty to the attempted theft of a cat in Truro. 

The 32-year-old did not appear in court on Wednesday, but his lawyer entered the plea to the charge of theft under $5,000 on his behalf. 

Tynes also faces two counts of breach of probation. 

Truro Police arrested him in early April after a report of someone trying to take a cat from an Exhibition Street property. 

Tynes is scheduled to appear in Truro Provincial Court for trial on February 8, 2018.
