Police say a Tilbury, Ont., woman called a plumber in Jan. 16 after finding she had no hot water.

It's alleged that when the plumber arrived, he stripped naked in front of the homeowner and put on his overalls and, upon completing the job, undressed again and put his clothes back on.

The man then gave the woman a bill and left.

Police say a 55-year-old Comber, Ont., man was arrested Wednesday night and charged with mischief.

OPP say Chatham-Kent police believe that this may not have been the first time that the man has displayed this behaviour and are asking anyone with information to contact police.
