Tip foils a conspiracy in Halifax

Crime Stoppers tip foils a conspiracy to commit mass murder in Halifax Canada

Two people were arrested at Halifax Stanfield International Airport and have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder after an alleged plot was foiled to kill a large number of people at the Halifax Shopping Centre in the city’s west end on Valentine’s Day.

Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath, a 23-year-old from Geneva, Ill., and Randall Steven Shepherd, 20, of Halifax have been charged.

A 17-year-old male from Cole Harbour, N.S., was originally arrested, but has since been released without charges.

Police say there is no evidence to link the teen to the charges against Souvannarath and Shepherd, but the investigation is ongoing.
