Police Briefs – Wednesday, January 24, 2018

A Chatham woman has turned herself into police after she was allegedly caught on video shoplifting.

Police say back on Tuesday, January 16, the woman went into Shopper Drug Mart on Queen St. in Chatham and allegedly put $16 worth of cosmetics in her pocket, then left without paying.

Officers say they were later able to determine the woman’s identity using the video surveillance.

The 24-year-old went to police headquarters on Tuesday afternoon and was charged with theft, and possession of stolen property.


Allegedly violating release conditions has landed a 25-year-old man in trouble with Chatham-Kent police.

The man was released from custody in November 2017 with the condition to live at a specific address in Chatham. But when officers stopped by on January 12, they learned he was no longer living there.

They also checked a previous address but his whereabouts were unknown, so a warrant was issued.

The suspect was found on Tuesday in a vehicle during a traffic stop. He was taken into custody and is facing two counts of failing to comply.
