Police Briefs – Saturday, September 12, 2015

Chatham-Kent police say a man is facing charges for abusing the fentanyl patch program.

Earlier this month, officers received a complaint from a Chatham-Kent pharmacy. They say a user of the patch program had altered his most recent patch form.

On Friday, police arrested a 51-year-old Chatham man. He’s now charged with uttering a forged document.


Police are also investigating a break-in at a Kings St. E home.

Officers believe someone broke into the residence through an unlocked window, stealing a variety of electronics and prescription medications.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Chatham-Kent police or Crime Stoppers.


A Chatham-Kent couple face multiple charges after a fight escalated on Friday.

Police say a 23-year-old woman was charged for a domestic-related incident in early August. Her court conditions prohibited her from coming into contact with her boyfriend at the time.

As it turns out, those same two people were involved in the incident Friday.

A 23-year-old Courtright woman is charged with failing to comply. A 24-year-old Pain Court man is also charged with domestic assault.
