Yarmouth, Nova Scotia

News release

Allen William Desrosiers has plead guilty to Criminal Harassment and has left Canada.

On December 14, 2022, as part of an ongoing investigation related to the stalking of a 25-year-old woman on Water St. in Yarmouth, RCMP officers with Yarmouth Town and Yarmouth Rural RCMP, safely arrested Allen William Desrosiers at a home on Chebogue Rd. in Rockville. The stalking incidents occurred in October and December 2022. Desrosiers was transported to the Yarmouth Provincial Court where he was remanded into custody.

On January 4, 2023, Desrosiers appeared in Shelburne Provincial Court, where he plead guilty to Criminal Harassment. Desrosiers was sentenced to 3 years Probation, which includes conditions that he leave Canada forthwith and that he cannot return, without the permission of the Nova Scotia Provincial Court, for 3 years. Desrosiers also entered into a Peace Bond, which will take effect at the end of his 3 years of Probation, which further restricts him from returning to Canada, without the permission of the Nova Scotia Provincial Court, for an additional 2 years.

Earlier today, Desrosiers left Canada and, as a result of the Probation Order and Peace Bond, he cannot, without the permission of the Nova Scotia Provincial Court, return to Canada for at least the next 5 years.

The Yarmouth Town and Yarmouth Rural RCMP worked closely with the Nova Scotia Public Prosecution Service as part of this investigation.
