Two arrests after police check out suspicious vehicle
Chatham-Kent police were able to do London police and OPP a favour early Wednesday morning by arresting two people who were wanted by those services on outstanding warrants.
Police said they arrested the pair while an officer was investigating a suspicious vehicle parked in a parking lot on Grand Avenue East in Chatham.
According to police, a check of the license plates showed that they were not registered to the vehicle and after investigating further, the officer learned that both the driver and her passenger were wanted by other police forces.
Officers said the driver -- a 34-year-old woman -- and her passenger -- a 34-year-old man -- were not supposed to be communicating with each other or in each other's presence, either, so they were both charged with failing to comply with their release conditions.
Both of them were taken into custody pending a bail hearing.
