Another wreck, another warrant arrest…and alleged shoplifter busted

Posted by on Friday, January 12th, 2018 @ 12:31 pm.

CARMI, Ill. - Police saw quite a bit of activity in Carmi Thursday, January 11, which included working a wreck on Main Street, a warrant service, and a woman arrested for shoplifting.

The wreck occurred at 1:02 in the afternoon, when a 2000 Chevrolet 1500 being driven by Eric C. Cox, 27, of Wadesville, Ind., was turning left onto Main Street from Fairview Drive and did not see a 2006 Toyota Tacoma being driven by Russell A. Flanagan, 27, of Carmi, until it was too late to stop.

The Toyota was towed by Don't Bumper to Bumper due to damage. The Chevy was driven from the scene with front end damage. Cox was cited for Failure to Yield.

Vicki Thomas

The alleged shoplifter call came immediately after the wreck call, at 1:04 p.m. from Dollar General. There, a Carmi woman, Vicki E. Thomas, 54, was arrested for felony Retail Theft. It was discovered that Thomas also had an active Failure to Appear warrant for Disorderly Conduct out of Wayne County, where she's also been in trouble for DUI and other infractions. She was taken to the White County Jail and remained there as of this afternoon.

At 5:37 p.m. Thursday, Robert Ray Horn, 55, of Carmi, was arrested on a White County warrant for Domestic Battery at the Carmi Motel. A $500 cash bond was placed on the felony count, but owing to Illinois' ridiculous new Bond Reform Law, Horn, who is a violent repeat offender and has been for years, was released on a recognizance bond, prompting many to wonder why he was even arrested in the first place.
