Robbery In Wheatley

Chatham-Kent police are trying to track down a man who’s accused of robbing the Mac’s Milk on Talbot Rd. W in Wheatley.

Officers say the man walked into the store at around 4:45am Sunday and demanded money and cigarettes from the cashier.

Police say the cashier complied with the suspect’s demands and wasn’t physically hurt during the incident.

Investigators say the man fled on foot and was last seen wearing a grey hoodie, a grey facemask, blue jeans, blue latex gloves, and a black backpack.

Anyone with information should call Chatham-Kent police or Crime Stoppers.

You Can’t Return What You Didn’t Buy

A 25-year-old Wheatley man is charged with fraud after police say he tried to return a truck cover that he didn’t buy.

Officers say the man went to the Walmart in Chatham Monday afternoon, picked out a $70 truck cover from the Automotive Section and took it to the returns desk where he allegedly tried to get some money back for it by using a receipt from the previous day from Walmart in Wallaceburg.

An employee at the store notified police, who later charged the man with fraud.


Two Arrested On Outstanding Warrants

Chatham-Kent police say a 29-year-old man is charged with assault and mischief after a domestic disturbance in Chatham last month.

Officers say the man had already fled the scene by the time they arrived, so they issued a warrant for his arrest.

Police say they found him Monday night.

In a separate case, a 39-year-old Chatham man was also arrested on an outstanding warrant Monday night after allegedly failing to attend court on January 31.

He was previously charged with unauthorized possession of a weapon and failing to comply with his probation order.


Michigan Man Driving Under Suspension

Police say a 47-year-old Michigan man is in trouble with the law after an officer pulled him over and learned he was suspended from driving in Ontario because of unpaid fines.

Officers say the man was pulled over on Agnes St. near Dufferin Ave. in Wallaceburg Monday afternoon.

He’s now scheduled to appear in Provincial Offences Court on March 14.
