Local resident arrested on many sex crime charges

n 2020 Kinross PD investigated a CSC complaint involving a victim, child 13-17 year old. During the time of the investigation the suspect fled the area. The investigation resulted in a warrant for multiple Felony charges.

Later in 2021 the Chippewa Co Sheriff’s Office investigated another incident involving another victim. This investigation involved a child who was under 13 years old at the time. The investigation resulted in another Felony warrant for the suspect.

The suspect, Eric John Chambers, was located and arrested on the outstanding warrants. The Chippewa Co Sheriff’s Office then drove to Colorado and picked up Mr. Chambers and brought him back to Michigan to face the charges.
