Teen accused of breaching release conditions

A 15-year-old youth who already has a history of getting into trouble is facing more charges now after he allegedly showed up at two properties in Shrewsbury that he was supposed to stay away from.

Chatham-Kent police said the teen was released from the court last week with several conditions, two of which required him to stay away from two specific addresses in Shrewsbury.

Police said despite those orders, the homeowner for one of those properties allegedly saw the boy on his property at around 5:30 p.m. Monday night.

Officers said the teen took off and was allegedly later seen on the second property at around 8:30 p.m. the same night.

Police were able to track him down and arrested him.

He was charged with two counts of failing to comply with his release conditions and was set to be held in custody pending a bail hearing.
