Caitlin D. Williams, fresh mugshot

CARMI, Ill. - A Carmi gal who complained last year about coverage of one of her warrant arrests is back in the headlines again...on another warrant arrest.

Carmi authorities provided information this morning that 30-year-old Caitlin D. Williams, of West Kerney Street there in town, turned herself in very late Friday night on a Theft warrant out of White County.

Williams apparently is having a hard time keeping track of her court appearances and, according to White County Sheriff's Department paperwork, is having a hard time keeping her hands to herself, as the warrant she turned herself in on is a 2017 one for misdemeanor theft of under $500 (currency).

The filing is so new it's not available on judici (as they don't post charges generally until the warrant is served.) Therefore, it's unknown at this point where the alleged theft occurred, or from whom.

Williams posted $150 cash bond and a $20 booking fee to secure her release, but not before she posed nicely for her mugshot, which shows off her hair a little more than the one about which she complained last year.

In other Carmi activity, Sherry L. Shelton, 43, of Valter Drive in Carmi, was the subject of a shoplifting call out of Little Giant Grocery yesterday (Sunday, March 19).

Reports indicate that Shelton was the subject of a call yesterday at about 3:21 p.m., indicating that she was in Little Giant Grocery Store on the southwest edge of town.

Turns out she was wanted on a 2016 failure to appear warrant for misdemeanor Retail Theft. She's currently a couple of months into a two-year supervision sentence on that. It doesn't appear that she's made any effort to pay on the $48 remaining in fines and fees over and above the $150 bond she posted when she was arrested in October 2016.

However, she was miraculously able to post $500 cash to bond out on the warrant arrest, and went on her way a lot lighter in the pocketbook.
