Woman served with eviction notice arrested for uttering threats

A 58-year-old Chatham woman has been arrested and charged after she allegedly threatened an employee of the property management company that oversees her apartment building.

Police said the employee was threatened after serving the woman an eviction notice last month.

Officers said when they showed up at the woman’s apartment, she had locked the door and refused to leave. A warrant was issued for her arrest and police took her into custody Thursday morning.

The accused was charged with uttering threats and later released with a future court date.


Two stunt drivers stopped in CK

Life is slowing down rather quickly for a 52-year-old Tilbury man and a 20-year-old man from Port Burwell after they were both stopped for stunt driving in Chatham-Kent Thursday morning.

Police said the Tilbury man was pulled over after an officer with the traffic unit recorded him going 135 kilometres per hour in a posted 80 km/h zone on Middle Line.

In a separate stop, an officer with the traffic unit also pulled over a vehicle that was going 134 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone on Dawn Mills Road.

Police said a Port Burwell man was behind the wheel of that vehicle.

In both cases, the drivers were charged with stunt driving. As a result, their driver’s licenses were seized for seven days and their vehicles were impounded for a week.

They’ll also be required to attend Provincial Offences Court to answer to the charge.


Police stop two suspended drivers

A 33-year-old Wallaceburg man and a 32-year-old Chatham man who were both suspended from driving are in more trouble with police now after they were both allegedly caught behind the wheel Thursday night.

Officers said the Wallaceburg man was stopped on Dufferin Avenue in Wallaceburg. Police said the man was charged with driving under suspension and failing to surrender his insurance card.

The Chatham man was stopped on Semenyn Avenue after police were called to investigate a disturbance in the area of McNaughton Avenue in Chatham.

Officers said they learned that the man was suspended from driving for unpaid fines, so he was charged accordingly.

Both of the accused have future court dates now.


No insurance, wrong plates

A 39-year-old Wallaceburg woman is facing charges after Chatham-Kent police stopped a vehicle on McNaughton Avenue in Wallaceburg Thursday night.

Police said through their investigation, they learned that the woman was allegedly driving without any insurance and improper license plates.

The accused was charged accordingly and is set to answer to those charges in a provincial offences court in December.
