Nova Scotia Men Charged in Connection with Border Incident
The two Nova Scotia men involved in the incident back in October at the Woodstock-Houlton border crossings have been charged with committing a hoax related to terrorist activity.
Twenty-one-year-old Bailey Roy and 22-year-old Damien Roy, both of Halifax, were charged jointly in Woodstock Provincial Court on Wednesday, November 28. Both men are also charged with obstruction in connection with the incident. There is a court-imposed publication ban on evidence in the case.
On October 26 at around 10:15 a.m., members of the New Brunswick RCMP responded to a suspicious vehicle that had stopped in the area between the Canada and U.S. border crossings.
Two men inside were refusing to communicate with Canada Border Services Agency officers or police.
The two men were taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection about six hours later, after their vehicle approached the U.S. border.
Bailey Roy was returned to Canadian custody on October 28. Damien Roy was returned on November 25.
Both men remain in custody. Bailey Roy is scheduled to return to court on December 4, and Damien Roy on December 18.
