Police Briefs – Thursday, January 25, 2018

Allegedly yelling threatening comments while holding a compound bow has landed a Chatham man in trouble.

Police say the man was in an apartment complex on Thames St. around 2:30pm Wednesday, when he became angry at another resident.

The suspect allegedly got a compound bow and went to resident’s door and started yelling at him.

Police were called and the 36-year-old was arrested and is facing uttering threats and weapons-related charges.


A 45-year-old woman has been charged after allegedly stealing a Dyson vacuum from Canadian Tire in Chatham.

Police were called to the store on Wednesday afternoon after a woman walked out without paying for the vacuum, worth $230.

Officers spotted the woman a short distance away, still carrying the vacuum in a box.

The Chatham woman was arrested, and the unopened vacuum was returned to the store.


Allegedly failing to show up for a scheduled court date has landed a Windsor woman behind bars.

The woman was released from custody for numerous offences, including theft, possession of a controlled substance, and failing to attend court back on January 4.

Then she didn’t show up for her court date on the January 11, so a warrant was issued.

The 22-year-old was located and arrested Wednesday night.


Violating curfew has led to more charges for a Bothwell man.

The 38-year-old was released from custody earlier this month with a curfew of 9pm. However, officers found him at a home in Ridgetown around 11:40 pm on Wednesday night.

He was charged with failing to comply and is being held pending a bail hearing.


A Chatham man is also awaiting a bail hearing after he was caught out after his curfew.

An officer stopped the man on King St. W. in Chatham around 4:45 am this morning because he didn’t have the proper lights on his bicycle.

Turns out the 32-year-old was released from custody back in December with a curfew, which he was violating.

He was charged with failing to comply.
