String of break and enters

Police are reminding residents to double-check the security of their property after several break and enters across the municipality this weekend.

Sometime Saturday overnight into Sunday, unknown suspects forced their way into an officer trailer on Ivan Street in Chatham.

Approximately $1,000 worth of Milwaukee tools were stolen.

Elsewhere in Harwich, a shed was broken into on Mull Road.

The suspects got away with $200 worth of tools.

Five other break-ins were reported to police between Saturday and Sunday where nothing of significant value was taken.

“Breaking and entering can be a lucrative opportunity for criminals,” police said in a release. “Consequently, any home or business is at risk. Property owners can greatly reduce this risk by simply improving the physical security of their premises.”

The Chatham-Kent Police Service website has a section on its website with tips about how to help prevent break and enters.


Traffic stop leads to charge

A routine traffic stop resulted in an 18-year-old getting charged.

Police were on general patrol in Chatham on Saturday evening when officers initiated a traffic stop on Keil Drive.

Through investigation, police learned that one of the occupants in the vehicle was currently out past his court-ordered curfew.

As a result, the Windsor man was arrested and eventually released with a future court date.

A total of 250 vehicles were stopped and eight roadside tests were administered.

As a result, one driver was issued a three-day licence suspension for being over the legal limit.
