Chatham-Kent police have arrested a man following a mail theft investigation.

Police say that over the past few months, Canada Post received complaints of mail not being delivered. Through investigation, Canada Post determined that a specific sub-contractor was responsible for the theft of mail containing money.

Police originally said that the man was an employee of Canada Post but recently corrected this to indicate that he was actually a sub-contractor.

Earlier this week, Canada Post contacted police for assistance. An officer located the sub-contractor driving his personal vehicle home after work and pulled him over. Upon being arrested, the man was searched and found to be in possession of two pieces of stolen mail.

Darren Hickmott, 46 years, of Grand Avenue East in Chatham has been charged with two counts of theft of mail and two counts of possessing stolen mail.

He was released with conditions pending a future court date.
