Shane Smith, 36, of Aylesford has been charged with two counts of Breach of Recognizance (release conditions).

 Smith, a high-risk sex offender, had been released into the Aylesford area on Sept. 27.  On Nov. 14, RCMP checked in to make sure Smith was keeping his curfew, only to find he was absent. Smith also failed to report his motor vehicle, another condition of his release. He was arrested Monday.

 Smith was released with conditions Tuesday after appearing in Kentville Provincial Court.
