Halifax Regional Police made an arrest on Monday afternoon after reports of a shoplifting incident, as the man in cuffs was found to have homicide charges in Texas.
Police say that they responded to the incident at 12:44 on Monday, responding to a potential shoplifter at a business near the 200 block of Chain Lake in Bayers Lake Park.
After a foot chase with the man, police arrested him.
The suspect, 28-year-Old Derek Cameron Whisenand, made a run for it, eventually being arrested at roughly 1:15 p.m. That’s when police say they discovered that Whisenand was wanted on a Canada Wide Immigration Warrant for a homicide in Texas.
Police say that Whisenand, who is now in custody of the federal authorities, made an illegal border crossing in Manitoba in June.
