Fingerprint Leads Police To Culprit

(CHATHAM, ON) – The Chatham-Kent police have arrested a man in connection with a break and enter in Chatham earlier this year.

On March 23, police responded to a break and enter at a business on Queen Street. At the time, an employee reported that an unknown man had entered the business and stole a cash register and various electronics. The scene was examined by police and evidence was seized for forensic analysis.

In April, police received information that a fingerprint located at the scene matched that of a local man, and on May 7, officers located the man on William Street.

Glen Brown, 46, of Chatham, was charged with break and enter and breach of probation. He was held in custody pending a bail hearing.
