Thursday Chatham-Kent police briefs


Drug raid leads to trafficking charges

A daylight drug raid in Chatham has led to charges against a local man.

Police raided a residence on Taylor Avenue just before noon on Wednesday, and say it was in relation to a harassment investigation.

Officers seized methamphetamine, cocaine, psilocybin, digital scales, and a significant amount of Canadian currency.

A 45-year-old Chatham man is charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Family fracas leads to charges

A Blenheim man has to answer to charges after police say he assaulted his sister Wednesday.

At midnight on Thursday, police responded to a family dispute on Hall Street North in Blenheim.

Upon arrival, officers were informed that the man had assaulted his sister without provocation on two separate occasions earlier in the evening. Officers took the man into custody and transported him to headquarters.

A 28-year-old Blenheim man has been charged with two counts of assault. He has been held pending a bail hearing.

Man shows up to answer to charges

A local man faces additional charges after police say he disobeyed a court order.

Back in April, police responded to an apartment on Mary Street in Chatham for a disturbance.

Through investigation, officers learned the man attended the residence despite being bound by a peace bond prohibiting him from associating with the occupant and attending the address. After unsuccessful attempts to locate the man, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Wednesday, the man attended Chatham-Kent Police headquarters and turned himself in.

A 48-year-old Chatham-Kent man is charged with break and enter and two counts of disobeying a court order. He has been held pending a bail hearing.
