Ignoring an order to move to a certain place has cost a Chatham man his freedom.

Chatham-Kent police say the 28-year-old man was released on his own recognisance on December 21, 2018, under conditions that he must follow a curfew and live at a certain address. Officers stopped by the address on Thursday and were told by the resident that the man had never lived there.

On Friday, officers found and re-arrested the man for breach of recognisance. He was being held at police headquarters.
