Military police nab man missing from halfway house

Police have located a man wanted on a parole warrant.

Police have located a man wanted on a parole warrant.

On Friday, Halifax Regional Police issued a release asking for the public’s assistance in locating Preston Lynden Denny, 23, who was residing at a Halifax halfway house following a 2008 conviction for sexual assault and break and enter.

Denny was reported missing Nov. 18 after failing to return to the halfway house.

Police issued a release yesterday saying Denny was located on Saturday night after being stopped by military police in Eastern Passage at about 11 p.m.

“He was walking on DND (Department of National Defence) property,” said police spokesman Const. Brian Palmeter. “So when they stopped him, he basically identified himself as being wanted on a parole warrant.”

Palmeter said the Cole Harbour detatchment of the RCMP was contacted and Denny was taken into custody and sent to the Burnside jail.

“Based on our concerns, we put out the release, but thankfully, through it all, we were able to locate him in very short order,” Palmeter said.
