Former fire chief faces new sex-related charges

Sarnia Police say the city's now-former fire chief, 54-year-old Patrick Martin Cayen, now faces 26 new criminal code charges, all of which pre-date charges laid last year.

After the arrest, which occurred Monday morning, Cayen was released and will appear in court on Tuesday to answer to the charges.

A publication ban is in place regarding the specifics of the charges, although Sarnia Police say the new charges are the result of three individuals having come forward as a result of the ongoing investigation.
