Tuesday Chatham-Kent police briefs


Sure, ignore release conditions

After two years of release and on a conditional sentence, perhaps a Shrewsbury woman had had enough.

As a result, she spent some time behind bars again and will have to answer to new charges.

Back in July of 2022, the courts released the woman on a conditional sentence order that had specific conditions. Those included remaining in her home, not buying, holding or drinking alcohol or other intoxicating substances, and wearing a GPS monitoring device.

Well, apparently it all went out the window Monday. Or at least off the person.

Shortly before 5 p.m., police were advised an alert was received from the GPS monitoring device indicating someone was tampering with it. This prompted officers to investigate.

At 6:30 p.m., police located the woman at her residence in Shrewsbury. She was intoxicated and was no longer wearing the device, police say.

A 55-year-old Shrewsbury woman was arrested and transported to police headquarters, where she was held pending a bail hearing.

Cement Head and Polly Filla?

Chatham-Kent police arrested two people Monday after they were apparently trying to drum up some concrete work along William Street in Chatham at 9 p.m.

The suspicious activity was reported, and officers responded.

The officers located the man and the woman. The woman was wanted for failing to attend court in relation to a September 2023 assault investigation in Chatham, police say.

The man was wanted by CKPS, Owen Sound Police and Saugeen Shores Police.

A 51-year-old Chatham-Kent man was arrested and charged with fraud.

A 31-year-old Chatham woman was arrested and faces existing assault with a weapon charges.

Get out and stay out

A local woman faces mischief and trespass charges after someone broke into a building on Hughes Street in Dresden Monday afternoon.

Police arrived on scene and learned a woman entered the building then an apartment. The woman had been trespassed from the property earlier in the day.

A 42-year-old Chatham-Kent woman is charged with mischief and trespassing.

Arrested development

Lambton OPP delivered a living present to Chatham-Kent police Monday morning…a court skipper.

The OPP advised local police they had a woman in custody wanted on a warrant held by the Chatham-Kent Police Service. The woman was wanted for failing to attend court in relation to theft investigations.

A 46-year-old Walpole Island woman was transported to police headquarters and held pending a bail hearing. She faces three counts of theft, three counts of possession of stolen property and three counts of failing to attend court.
