Wanted Man Accused Of Stealing

Chatham-Kent police say someone on their wanted list is accused of stealing some electronics from the Canadian Tire store in Blenheim.

Police say a warrant was issued for the man’s arrest after officers learned he was allegedly breaching his release conditions by living somewhere he wasn’t supposed to.

Investigators say the man walked into the Blenheim Canadian Tire Tuesday evening and walked out with some headphones, a Bluetooth speaker, and a wireless keyboard without paying for them.

Officers were called in and they tracked him down to an address on Sherman St. where they also found the stolen items.

The man they arrested is now charged with breaching his bail conditions, theft, and possession of stolen property.
