Lifeguards at Lawrencetown Beach yesterday spotted what they thought was a shark swimming close to shore. They ordered everyone out of the water as the beach was shut down for an hour. A local surfer says he’s never seen Lawrencetown beach closed. The beach re-opened later Thursday afternoon.
And It’s a different kind of missing case. A ball python is missing from an apartment in Dartmouth.
Its owner says she doesn’t want people to be afraid of the metre long snake because she’s not hungry.
She last ate a large rat about two weeks ago, and won’t eat again for “another week or two.”
Police say a woman walking in downtown Halifax yesterday morning witnessed a man expose himself.
The man didn’t approach the 26-year-old woman along Hollis and Morris street, but police are still on the lookout.
An 81 year old victim of a violent home invasion Wednesday in Dartmouth won’t be opening his door to strangers anymore.
The Elderly man had two young men forcing him down to his basement by gunpoint. They demanded the keys to his car and pushed the homeowner to the floor as they robbed his house. Police are currently investigating.
