A heated argument has resulted in charges for a Chatham couple.
Police received a call around 10pm Tuesday after citizens in the area heard a man and woman fighting while in a tent in the backyard of a home.
When officers arrived they learned that the man was under a probation order to not communicate with that woman. The 28-year-old has been charged with failing to comply.
Police also learned that the couple has been living together, which lead to the 28-year-old woman being charged as well.
Power tools worth $2,000 are missing from a garage in Chatham.
Police say the various tools were taken from a detached garage on Murray St. sometime late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Chatham-Kent police or Crime Stoppers.
