Monday police briefs


Knuckles and plates, oh my

On Sunday afternoon, a Chatham-Kent police officer on general patrol observed a man pushing a car that ran out of gas on Lacroix Street near Park Avenue in Chatham.

Through investigation, the officer learned that the license plates on the vehicle were stolen.

A set of brass knuckles was also observed inside the vehicle.

A 36-year-old Blenheim man was arrested and charged with being in possession of property obtained by a crime and possession of a prohibited weapon.

Family squabble leads to charges

Sometimes, family just can’t stay away.

In early September, a man was released from court with several conditions. Two of those conditions stated that he was not to communicate with a specific family member or attend their home in Chatham.

Yesterday morning, the man attended the home and caused a disturbance, police say.

A 26-year-old man, of no fixed address, was arrested and charged with two counts of failing to comply with his release conditions.

Resisting arrest

Just before 11 p.m. last night, police responded to the report of an unwanted man at a business in Chatham.

Officers located the man and through investigation learned that he was currently bound by a daily curfew of 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.

As the man was placed under arrest, he pulled away from the officer and resisted.

The 25-year-old man, of no fixed address, was taken into custody and charged with failing to comply with his release conditions and resist arrest. He has been held in custody pending a bail hearing.

Truck stolen

Sometime early this morning, someone stole a silver 2002 Ford F-250 truck from a residence on Prospect Street.

The truck was last seen with Ontario license 52F R47.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Gary Oriet at or 519-436-6600 ext. 87152. Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and may be eligible for a cash reward.
