RCMP ask for help identifying people who ransacked buildings storing Mi’kmaw lobster catch

RCMP are looking for help identifying multiple persons of interest after two lobster plants in southwest Nova Scotia were ransacked in October.

“We have some evidence of other persons involved so we’re looking for assistance in identifying who those persons are,” said Sgt. Andrew Joyce.

Police have released photos and are asking the public to help identify individuals who were at the lobster pound in Middle West Pubnico, N.S., on the evening of Oct. 13. 

The building had been storing the catches of Mi’kmaw fishers when it was vandalized.

Photos from that evening show several men at the plant, some of whom are seen surrounding a cooler filled with lobster.

Joyce said the RCMP have arrested 21 people in relation to the incidents at the lobster plants. No charges have been laid.

However, four people have been charged over the tensions that followed.
