CROSSVILLE, Ill. - A White County sex offender registered in Crossville and trying to prove he was registered apparently didn't think ahead yesterday when he asked Sheriff Doug Maier in to his residence.

Steven E. Linder, 35, residing on Goodman Street in Crossville, was the subject of a White County warrant on a 2018 charge of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender (annual registration).

Sheriff Doug Maier and Sgt. Craig Poole went to Linder's residence to serve it, and Linder invited Maier inside in order to "show him a paper showing Linder had registered," according to Maier's report.

Maier noted that Linder was alone in the residence. He also noted that while inside, he observed several items of drug-related material on the living room table in plain and open view. These included a glass bowl with glass pipe, glass multi-colored smoking pipe, a piece of glass with a razor blade, a wooden box with a broken glass smoking pipe in it, and a metal Altoids container with several small plastic bags.

Linder advised Maier that the pipe was to smoke marijuana and said the plastic bags were empty.

Linder was transported to the White County Jail. Maier then noted in his report that a small plastic bag tested positive for meth, and so Linder was held at the jail on $3,000 cash bond on the warrant, and Possession of Meth (no bond on that).
