CORNWALL, Ontario - The third Kashechewan evacuee in Cornwall to be arrested and a notorious city resident who made national headlines giving birth in a jail cell highlight today's Cornwall police blotter.

Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS) blotter update.

The Nav Centre in Cornwall's third time hosting Kashechewan evacuees has not been a charm.

In two weeks, three Kashechewan residents seeking refuge at the centre have been arrested and charged for petty crimes.

City cops were at the centre early this morning for a disturbance call. Once on scene they located an intoxicated man and took him into custody.

Kashechewan resident Shadrach Hughie, 26, was arrested and charged with breaching an undertaking for having consumed alcohol.

He was held for a bail hearing.

The next name in today's police blotter is no stranger to controversy.

City resident Julie Bilotta, 27, has been charged with theft under $5,000 and breach of probation for failing to keep the peace.

Police allege the woman lifted a few items from a Brookdale Avenue store Thursday. After a short foot chase, she was arrested and later released to appear in court on July 10.

The final caper ends with a strange twist of events leading to the arrest of a local man.

After completely dismissing his legal obligation to attend court on May 27, putting himself in hot water with Cornwall police, Alain Farley, 32, turned himself over to local law enforcement days later.

He was arrested Thursday off the strength of a warrant after attending police headquarters and held for a bail hearing.
