Thursday Chatham-Kent police briefs


Crash leads to impaired charge

A Wednesday evening collision on Longwoods Road has led to charges against a Glencoe man, after police say he fled the scene.

Chatham-Kent police investigated the two-vehicle accident near Caledonia road shortly after 6:30 p.m.

While responding to the collision, police learned that driver of one of the vehicles had fled, failing to remain at the scene of the collision.

Officers were able to locate the driver a short distance away on Darrell Road, where a traffic stop was conducted on his vehicle.

Through investigation, police believed the driver to be intoxicated by alcohol, at which point he was placed under arrest for operation while impaired.

The man was taken to police headquarters where he refused to provide breath samples, police say.

A 56-year-old Glencoe man is charged with three Criminal Code offences; refusing to comply, operation while impaired and failing to stop at an accident. He also faces several other Liquor Licence and Control Act offences.

Probation violation

Shortly after midnight early Thursday morning, police answered a disturbance call on Wedgewood Avenue in Chatham.

As they investigated, officers learned one of the people present was not supposed to be there as he was bound by a probation order with conditions preventing him from attending the address and from associating with the homeowner.

A 47-year-old Chatham man is charged with Fail to Comply with Probation Order.

Suspicious activity leads to arrest

Two men trying to buy “illicit substances” led to one of them getting arrested Wednesday evening, police say.

Shortly before 6:30 p.m., police received a call from a concerned citizen on Canal Street East in Tilbury reporting suspicious activity. The two were going up to pedestrians and vehicles in the area trying to buy “illicit substances,” police say.

Through investigation, police were able to identify both men and later located them at an address on Young Street in Tilbury. One of the men was found to have an outstanding warrant in effect with Windsor Police Service.

A 28-year-old Tilbury man was ultimately arrested on the strength of this warrant, and he was handed over to Windsor police a short time later.
