Arrest in historic B&E
Chatham-Kent police have arrested a man in connection with a break and enter from 2014, thanks to new evidence.
Back in late October of 2014, police responded to a break and enter at an apartment in Chatham. The scene was examined and evidence was seized for forensic analysis.
In June of 2021, police received information from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who oversee the Real Time Identification (RTID) system, that a fingerprint from the scene matched that of a former resident of Chatham.
The RCMP’s Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS) maintains the national database of criminal records in Canada. Local police and other authorities across Canada contact CCRTIS to check the fingerprint records of people who have been charged or convicted of a crime.
