Four arrests on outstanding warrants

The long arm of the law caught up with four different people on Monday who were wanted for a variety of offences in Chatham-Kent.

A 50-year-old Chatham Township man was arrested at police headquarters Monday morning after he turned himself in. Police said the man was wanted for allegedly breaking his release conditions, which required him to stay at least 200 metres away from a specific residence on Longwoods Road. He was charged with two counts of failing to comply with his release conditions and taken to the courthouse pending a bail hearing.

A 50-year-old man from Lorne Avenue in Chatham who made it onto the local police force’s Wanted List was also arrested Monday. He was charged with failing to comply with his probation order and released with conditions and a future court date.

A 32-year-old woman who was wanted on “numerous” outstanding warrants was arrested in Chatham Monday night. Police said an officer on general patrol spotted her on Park Avenue East and took her into custody pending a bail hearing.

Last but not least, police said a 29-year-old woman who was wanted for failing to sign in with police back in July of 2018 was arrested Monday night after an officer saw her on Murray Street in Chatham. She was charged with failing to comply and breaching her probation order and also been held in custody pending a bail hearing.
