C-K cop one of three facing drug charges in Leamington


A Chatham-Kent police officer is among three people recently charged in Leamington for drug possession.

Leamington OPP say an officer pulled a vehicle over on Wigle Street in Leamington about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday evening.

Police say the officer learned the driver was suspended from driving and failed to comply with previous release conditions.

Additional investigation revealed a quantity of drugs in the vehicle.

A 53-year-old Chatham man and a 44-year-old Chatham woman, Const. Cristelle Vanden Enden, face three charges each of possession of cocaine, methamphetamines, and other substances, as well as a charge of possession of stolen property and a charge under the Reopening Ontario Act.

The driver, a 37-year-old Leamington man, faces similar charges, as well as one for failing to attend court, and another under the Highway Traffic Act.

Vanden Enden is on leave of absence from the Chatham-Kent Police Service while facing fraud charges.
