Police Investigate Three Recent Break-Ins

Chatham-Kent police are trying to track down thousands of dollars worth of stolen goods after a trio of break-ins earlier this week.

Investigators say the biggest theft was from a locked storage unit on Richmond St. in Chatham.

Officers say someone broke into the unit sometime late Thursday night or early Friday morning and made off with a variety of power tools with a combined value of about $10,000.

In the second case, officers say someone broke the lock off of a trailer on Payne St. in Chatham and took off with a surveillance camera that was at the residence.

In the third incident, police say someone forced their way into a garage at a residence on Ottawa Dr. in Chatham and stole some power tools. The total value of the tools that were stolen in that case is $300.

Anyone with information on any of these crimes is asked to contact Chatham-Kent police or Crime Stoppers.
