In accordance with the Nova Scotia Release of a High-Risk Offender Protocol, the Nova Scotia RCMP is advising Nova Scotians, particularly those living in Yarmouth County, of the relocation of a high-risk sex offender.
Allen Desrosiers, 64, who was convicted of sexual offences in the United States, is now residing in the Rockville area of Yarmouth County. Desrosiers is described as white, 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, with blue eyes and white hair.
