Friday police briefs



It took about three weeks, but Chatham-Kent police believe they got their man.

On Nov. 16, police received a complaint at a McNaughton Avenue East business.

During the investigation, officers learned that a man had stolen $4,000 in tools and cheques that the man tried to forge and cash in at a local bank, police say.

After 21 days, police made an arrest of a 34-year-old Chatham man.

He was charged with theft, possession of stolen property, fraud, and uttering forged documents.

Warrant arrest

Shortly after 7 a.m. Friday morning, a 20-year-old woman turned herself in at Chatham-Kent police headquarters for a bail violation.

She was held a pending bail hearing and was later released by the court with conditions and a future court date.

No show for court

Police on Thursday just before noon arrested a 38-year-old Chatham woman who did not attend court to answer for theft charges.

She was originally arrested for theft on Nov. 3 and was released with a court date at which she did not attend and thus her second arrest.

The 38-year-old was released and again has a new court date of Jan. 18.
