Around 3 p.m. yesterday afternoon, police responded to a collision involving a car and cyclist on St. Clair Street between Maryknoll Road and Regency Drive in Chatham.
Total damage was estimated at $5,000.
The cyclist, a 49-year-old Chatham man, sustained minor injuries and was charged with start from stopped position, not in safety.
He was also arrested on an outstanding warrant for failing to comply with his probation order.
He was released pending a future court date.
Cheque out this fraud
A Dresden man has a lot to answer for after cheques were taken from two different cars recently, and then used to pull money from the owners’ accounts.
Chatham-Kent police say someone entered two vehicles in Chatham last month and cheques were stolen.
Five cheques were used at local banks and money was withdrawn from the owners’ accounts.
With the assistance of video surveillance, police identified the man responsible.
