Man arrested after two calls to police on St. Clair Street

A 59-year-old Sarnia man is facing charges in connection with a break-in and a broken window in two separate incidents on St. Clair Street in Chatham on Tuesday.

Chatham-Kent police said they got the first call just after 1 p.m. from a homeowner who was reporting that someone had broken into his home and an outbuilding on his property and stole several items including a blue Columbia Rambler bicycle with a brown leather seat.

Police got a second call on the same street about four hours later from a homeowner who had found a man on her property that she believed had entered her barn.

Officers said when the woman confronted the man, he allegedly became violent and threw a rock through a window of her house.

Police said the man left the area, but left a blue bicycle behind that matched the bike that was stolen earlier.

The homeowner was able to provide a description of the man for police and the direction he was last seen heading and officers managed to track down a suspect a couple of hours later.

When police arrested the man, they allegedly found some identification that belonged to the first homeowner who called police about the break-in.

A 59-year-old Sarnia man was charged with break and enter, mischief and possession of stolen property. He was taken to police headquarters and he was set to be held there pending a bail hearing.

Man spits inside police cruiser after arrest

A 57-year-old Chatham man is facing charges after he allegedly broke a window at a home in Chatham and then “spat continuously” inside a police cruiser after he was arrested.

Officers said they picked the man up while they were responding to a complaint about someone throwing rocks at a home on Argyle Crescent in Chatham at around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said a large window at the front of the home was broken as a result of the rock-throwing, adding that the suspect allegedly left the scene before officers arrived.

He was arrested a short distance away, though, and that’s when he allegedly spat inside of the police cruiser that was taking him away.

The accused was charged with two counts of mischief and later released with conditions and a future court date.
