Man wanted for shoplifting in Chatham arrested in London

A 43-year-old London man who was wanted in connection with a shoplifting incident at the Real Canadian Superstore in Chatham has been arrested.

Chatham-Kent police said he was picked up by London police Tuesday morning and transported to Chatham-Kent for court purposes.


Failing to comply with release conditions

A 23-year-old Chatham man is in more trouble with police now after allegedly going out without his surety.

Police said the man was released from custody at the end of November in 2018 with several conditions including one that required him to remain in his residence at all times unless he was accompanied by his surety.

An officer on general patrol reported seeing the man in the backseat of a vehicle that was stopped by police at around 11 p.m. Tuesday night.

The surety was not in the vehicle, so the man was arrested and charged with failing to comply with his release conditions. He was also arrested on two outstanding warrants and has been held in custody pending a bail hearing.


Failing to attend court leads to arrest

The accused has been held in custody pending a bail hearing.
