Friday police briefs


Bail violation

A Wallaceburg man faces charges after Chatham-Kent police say they found him on Thursday in possession of a Taser and a replica handgun.

Police say the man was released from court in mid-August with a court order indicating he was to not possess any weapons.

But shortly before noon on Thursday, On Murray Street South in Wallaceburg, officers spotted the man and learned he had the replica and Taser on him, police say.

A 45-year-old Wallaceburg man was arrested and charged with two counts of unauthorized possession.
