Accused Robber Stayed Out Too Late

If the police catch you out past your curfew when you’re charged with robbery, you’re going to be in trouble.

That’s what happened to a 26-year-old Thamesville man this week.

Police say the man was charged with robbery back in April and released with several conditions — including a requirement to stay inside his residence between 7pm and 7am.

Officers say they went to check up on him at 8:30pm Wednesday, but he wasn’t home.

Police found him at around 7:30pm Thursday and took him back into custody.

Officers arrested the man at around 9:30pm Thursday and released him with conditions and a future court date.
