Youth arrested twice in the same day

A 15-year-old boy is facing several charges after he was allegedly caught breaching his release conditions and then did some damage with a hockey stick.

Chatham-Kent police said they found a cell phone in the teen’s possession Wednesday morning when they were checking on him at his residence in Dover Township even though he had been ordered by the court not to have one. He was arrested and charged as a result.

Officers showed up again and arrested him for a second time.
