Windsor police say an agitated customer who was being evicted from his rented storage unit has been arrested and charged with several offences.
Members of the Windsor Police Service Problem Orientated Policing (POP) Unit responded to the incident on the east side of the city on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.
Officers arrived and met with the complainant, who reported that a customer who was being evicted from their storage unit was loading a truck with the contents of the unit when he became irate toward the complainant.
