Daylight break-ins


A trio of daring daylight break-ins yesterday in Chatham-Kent saw one man arrested and police looking for the public’s help in solving the others.

On Monday afternoon, police responded to a break-and-enter report on Pine Street in Chatham. Police say the man entered an unlocked garage and assaulted the homeowner when confronted.

He fled prior to police arrival, but was taken into custody a short while later.

A 28-year-old Chatham man is charged with break and enter, and assault.

Sometime between noon and 5 p.m. Monday, someone broke into a residence on Sparks Drive in Chatham.
