Bail violations

It’s simple. When you are released from jail with conditions that include remaining in your residence except under certain conditions and not to possess any wire cutting tools or break-in instruments, you follow those instructions.

Yet time and time again, police scoop up violators.

A man was released from court in mid-March with just those conditions. And he was back behind bars Monday night.

Police say an officer observed the man walking alone in the area of Degge Street and Park Street in Chatham. The man was carrying both cutters and wire.

Police arrested and charged the man with two counts of failing to comply with a release order.
