Lyman Domestic Violence Suspect Found Hiding in Closet Ceiling
A Lyman man, who was out on bail for a domestic violence charge, was caught in the closet ceiling of a home he was banned from visiting.
State Police say 29-year-old Joseph Chamberlin was originally charged with domestic violence aggravated assault, in relation to an incident on December 21st. Per his bail conditions, he was ordered not to visit the Lyman residence where, on February 25th, police found him hiding in the ceiling of a closet. Chamberlin now faces an additional charge of felony violation of bail. Troopers had gone to the home to conduct a bail check.
It's not the first time he's been in trouble, since getting out on bail. On December 21st, a Trooper was checking on the victim in the case, when Chamberlin called them from the jail. Since he was forbidden from contacting the victim, he was charged with violation of pre-conviction bail. On January 6th, a Trooper noticed Chamberlin walking down the road, and it appeared that he was under the influence of alcohol or a narcotic, which was a violation of his bail conditions. The Trooper found approximately 5.35 ounces of marijuana on him and a knife, which was another violation of his bail conditions from the December 21st, 2019 incident. He was arrested and taken to the York County Jail.
