A man reported missing earlier this month by police in Toronto has been arrested and charged by police in Nova Scotia.

RCMP say the 19-year-old was arrested Tuesday following a report that a man had entered a Truro area business with a concealed weapon.

Police say officers responded and arrested a man a short time later near the Truro Heights Connector Road.

The man later appeared in a Truro court.

The Mounties say he has been charged with possession of a weapon dangerous to the public and two counts of breaching a recognizance.
