They only come out at night


Chatham-Kent police scooped up a couple of people overnight for a variety of charges.

Shortly before 2:30 a.m., an officer spotted a man on Grand Avenue East in Chatham that police say was released from jail back in June with an overnight curfew.

As the officer placed the man under arrest, police say the man tossed a glass pipe and plastic bag containing methamphetamine.

A 46-year-old man of no fixed address is charged with failing to comply and drug possession.

Police say the man was also wanted in connection with an assault earlier in the summer in Highgate.

About 90 minutes later, in Wallaceburg, officers responded to a report of a suspicious man near Wallace Street.

When the cops arrived, the man fled on foot. He was discovered hiding in a nearby family member’s home, police say, and taken into custody.

As police investigated, they learned he was also bound by an overnight curfew, and wanted for assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, failing to comply, and breach of probation.

A 40-year-old Wallaceburg man faces a slew of charges as a result.
