Shelburne Man Arrested In Quebec City

A Shelburne County man charged with abducting his baby two years ago has been arrested on a Canada wide warrant in Quebec City. Corporal Nancy Mason says 45 year-old Collin James Lawrence was taken into custody last Wednesday and transported back to Nova Scotia. The warrant was issued September 30th after he didn't show up to his Supreme Court trial child abduction. Lawrence was arrested in 2011 near the New Brunswick border after allegedly taking his newborn child from its mother. The Supreme Court trial regarding the abduction matter has rescheduled for October 28 in Barrington. He's facing five new charges in relation to his failure to appear, those matters will be dealt with on October 16 in Shelburne Province Court.
