Man arrested for breaching house arrest

A 51-year-old Walpole Island man is back in police custody after he allegedly left a specific property without permission.

Chatham-Kent police said they found him when they were conducting a traffic stop on McNaughton Avenue in Wallaceburg just before 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Police said the man was a passenger in the vehicle, even though he had previously been released with an order that required him to stay at a specific property with specific conditions.

He was arrested, charged with failing to comply with a release order, and taken into custody pending a bail hearing.

After looking for a break-in suspect for a little over half a year, Chatham-Kent police got their man.

Police said they learned that two suspects were at the location, removing material.

Officers said when they arrived at the scene, two men were allegedly spotted trying to flee the area.
