A 15-year-old from Chatham is in more trouble with local police for allegedly breaking their conditions.

Police say the teen was released from custody at the end of April with several conditions. It’s alleged that the teen broke those conditions by not living at the home agreed upon and not going to school.

As a result, the teen has been charged with failing to comply.


Police are trying to track down stolen items from a storage unit in Chatham.

Sometime between January 2018 and May 2018, police say a 50 inch’ flat screen Panasonic TV, a wooden dining room set, and a black leather love-seat were stolen from the unit located on Queens Line.

The stolen items are worth approximately $1,400.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Constable Ken Morrell at kenm@chatham-kent.ca or 519-436-6600 ext. 87272. Tips can also be called to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).


A 26-year-old Chatham man will have to go to court at the end of May for not learning his lesson.

Police say the Chatham man was put on probation March 3. He had several conditions to follow, one of which was to follow a daily curfew. The 26-year-old was charged with breaching probation May 9.

Then early Thursday morning, police say the 26-year-old was found out past his curfew while officers were checking on an unrelated matter at a home on Dufferin Ave. The Chatham man has since been charged with failing to comply and breach of probation.
