Three Men Arrested For Breaking Release Conditions

Chatham-Kent police say three men are all in trouble with the law after allegedly failing to comply with their release conditions.

Police say two of the men were allegedly out past their curfew, while one of them allegedly wasn’t living where he was supposed to.

Officers say they picked up a 38-year-old Moraviantown man in a hotel lobby in Chatham at about 9am Sunday after he had allegedly been wandering around there for several hours. That was a problem because police say he was ordered to stay inside his residence from 9pm to 6am when he was released from custody in March.

A 21-year-old Wheatley man, who was also allegedly out past his curfew, was arrested at his home at around noon on Sunday. Police say he wasn’t home when they were checking up on him on October 28, 2017 at 6:50am even though he was supposed to be home between 10pm and 8am daily.

In the third case, a 30-year-old Chatham man was arrested after he allegedly moved out of the place he was ordered to live at when he was released from custody on October 17, 2017. Officers arrested him at a different address in Chatham at around 2:40am Monday while they were responding to an unrelated matter.

Youth Accused Of Skipping His Court Date

If you skip class at school, you might get a detention. But if you skip your court date, you’ll probably spend some time in a jail cell.

A 17-year-old Chatham boy is finding that out the hard way after allegedly failing to show up for his court date on October 18.

Police say the teen was released from custody on October 2 with conditions and a future court date.

Officers say when he didn’t show up for that court appearance, police issued a warrant for his arrest.

An officer on general patrol found the teen near the corner of King St. W. and 6th St. in Chatham at around 10pm Sunday.

He was taken into custody and held for a bail hearing.
