A 29-year-old man from the New Germany-area has been arrested after a parrot was stolen in Bedford earlier this week. Halifax Regional Police along with members of the South Shore Integrated Street Crime Unit searched a home in Farmington and recovered the blue front Amazon bird "Schooner" around 10:45pm Wednesday night. Police say Jacob William Wandless is in Halifax court today on charges of theft and possession of stolen property.
