Police investigation leads to arrest after a break-in on August 5

The Chatham-Kent police have arrested a man with regards to a Chatham break-in that occurred earlier this month.

On August 5th police responded to a break and enter complaint at Perry Refrigeration on Park Avenue West. The owner reported that over the holiday weekend someone had entered the fenced compound and moved several pieces of scrap metal and copper. Small piles of scrap metal were found lying along the rear fence, placed so that someone could potentially grab them from outside the fence.

A police investigation identified the man responsible for entering the fence compound and moving the scrap metal. Yesterday afternoon police located the man on Tweedsmuir Avenue East and he was arrested.

The 30-year-old Chatham man has been charged with break and enter. He has been held in custody for a bail hearing.
