Vehicle towed after traffic stop

Youth arrested again after breaching conditions

A 16-year-old Wallaceburg boy is in more trouble with the law after he allegedly breached his release conditions.

Chatham-Kent police said the teen was released from court back in February with several conditions, adding that officers learned on Wednesday that the youth had broken one of those conditions by attending a specific property in Wallaceburg that he had been ordered to stay away from.

As a result, the youth was arrested, charged, and taken into custody pending a bail hearing.
