No show in court 

He may not have showed up for a court date, but a Wallaceburg man turned himself in on Wednesday to the police.

The man attended the Chatham-Kent police Wallaceburg station and turned himself in. The man was arrested on a warrant for failing to attend court related to a motor vehicle collision where the man was charged with leaving the scene of a collision. 

A 62-year-old Wallaceburg man was transported to police headquarters and released with conditions and a further court date. 

Missing items leads to charges

A Chatham woman faces charges connected to attempted theft at the Real Canadian Superstore Wednesday. 

At 11:22 a.m., police responded to the call. Before police arrived, the items were recovered, and a woman left the store. 

Police were able to identify the woman by using surveillance footage. They learned the woman was bound by a probation order which included a condition not to attend the Real Canadian Superstore. 

A 35-year-old Chatham woman was later located and arrested. She was charged with theft, possessing stolen property, and violating a probation order. She was released with a future court date.

Through investigation, police learned the man was wanted on a warrant for failing to attend court after being charged with impaired driving. 

A 62-year-old Chatham man was arrested and transported to police headquarters. He was held pending a bail hearing. 

Drunk in public
