Police use canine unit to apprehend suspect



Chatham-Kent police had to call in the dogs to track a man Tuesday night after he fled police custody.

Police say the man breached two parts of a probation order he was under when he went to the residence of a former girlfriend about 7 p.m. last night and tried to speak to her.

She called the cops.

The man fled.

But police located him about 2 a.m. walking along Sandys Street near McNaughton Avenue West. As the officers arrested the man, he took off running, police say.

The canine unit tracked the man down and officers found him hiding under the deck of a home on Timmins Crescent. He refused to come out, so police sent the dog in.

A 28-year-old Chatham man was taken to the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance for treatment of a dog bite to the leg and a cut above his eye. He now faces two counts of breach of probation, escape lawful custody and resisting arrest.
