One arrested, one on the loose after lottery tickets stolen

Chatham-Kent police have arrested a 49-year-old man and they’re looking for his accomplice after someone stole about $3,000 worth of lottery tickets from a convenience store in Wallaceburg.

Police said they got the call early Sunday morning at the Mac’s on McNaughton Avenue.

Through their investigation, officers were able to identify a pair of suspects and later arrested a 49-year-old Wallaceburg man in connection with the case. He was charged with theft and possession of stolen property and later released with conditions and a future court date.

Officers are still looking for a woman who has also been identified as a suspect in the case.


Woman charged with assault

A 32-year-old woman is charged with assault after allegedly assaulting a man she knows.

Police arrested her after responding to a disturbance call at a residence in Chatham on Sunday.

The accused was later released with conditions and a future court date.


Executed warrants

Chatham-Kent police arrested three people who were wanted on outstanding warrants over the past 24 hours.

A 31-year-old Wallaceburg man who was wanted for assault and failing to attend court was arrested Sunday afternoon.

A 30-year-old Chatham woman who was wanted for failing to comply with her release conditions was arrested early Monday morning. Police said she was also charged with some additional counts of failing to comply because she was allegedly breaching her curfew and had some credit cards that weren’t in her name.

A 29-year-old Chatham who was wanted for fraud-related offences and failing to attend court was also arrested early Monday morning.

All three of the accused were arrested, charged, and taken into custody pending bail hearings.
