Police Briefs – Monday, July 11, 2016

A 35-year-old Chatham man is charged with 12 domestic-related offences after police got a tip about an incident at an address on Queens Line.

Police say when officers arrived at the scene yesterday, they learned the man had also recently swallowed a handful of sleeping pills, so he had to be taken to the hospital.

Once he was cleared by medical staff, the man was then taken to police headquarters where he’s being held pending a bail hearing.


A Chatham teen who was previously booked for weapons-related offences is in trouble with the law again after police say he broke his curfew.

Officers say they also found a replica BB-gun handgun in the man’s residence yesterday morning while they were checking up on him.

Police say he wasn’t home at the time, but they later found him at a different address in Chatham and charged him with breaching his bail conditions.
