A Chatham man has been arrested in connection with a recent crime spree.

Police say that on December 6th, 2013 a man attended an apartment building on Witherspoon Avenue in Chatham and stole a coin box for laundry and a giant bicycle. The theft was caught on security video and officers positively identified the suspect.

Then on December 29th, 2013 police were called to the Petroline gas station located on Grand Avenue East in Chatham in response to a theft. A male suspect filled up his vehicle with about $17 worth of gas and fled without making any attempt to pay for the gas. Video surveillance captured the suspect and the officer positively identified him.

Then on December 30th, 2013 police were called to the Pioneer gas station located on Richmond Street in Chatham in response to a theft. A male suspect filled up his vehicle with about $30 worth of gas and fled without making any attempt to pay for the gas. Video surveillance captured the suspect and the vehicle licence plates.

Officers quickly learned the licence plates had been reported stolen three days prior and did not belong on the vehicle in the video. Later that day, officers located the vehicle on Beattie Street in Chatham and discovered it had been stolen from a business in Blenheim. The vehicle was returned to its owner but the suspect remained outstanding.

On Wednesday police located and arrested the suspect at a residence in Blenheim. The 36–year-old Chatham man has been charged with numerous criminal offences and remains in custody pending a bail hearing.
