Wednesday Chatham-Kent police briefs


C-K cops help OPP with arrest

Two police services, one drone and one police dog teamed up and sniffed out a suspect Tuesday morning.

Shortly after 9:30 a.m., Chatham-Kent police were asked by the OPP to help locate a man sought in connection with the theft of a utility trailer that had tools inside it.

The man had evaded OPP on foot and was believed to be hiding along the Thames River in the Longwoods Road and Communication Road area.

C-K officers arrived and deployed K9 Helix as well as the police drone. They located the man on the other side of the river, as he swam across and tried to hide in tall weeds and mud.

A 50-year-old Chatham man was arrested and turned over to OPP.

Nibbling at paramedics will get you charged

On Tuesday morning, a man freaked out while receiving medical attention, to the point he now faces charges.

At approximately 11:23 a.m., police responded to the area of Coverdale Street in Chatham in response to an unconscious male.

Upon arrival, police located the man who appeared to be under the influence.

While receiving medial attention the male began to act out erratically; attempting to grab and bite paramedics and refusing to obey commands, police say.

A 32-year-old Chatham man was arrested for breach of peace and transported to police headquarters where he was held until sober and later released.

No injuries occurred during interaction.
