Man charged with break and enter

Damaging a residence on Park Street in Chatham has landed a 29-year-old man with charges.

Police said the man was recently evicted from the residence, but showed up there on Thursday morning and allegedly kicked the door several times.

Officers said the door broke free of the frame when the complainant called the police and the suspect fled.

While an officer was speaking with the victim, the man returned and was arrested for breaking and entering a dwelling house to commit mischief.

The Chatham man was later released with a future court date.
