Theft of weapons report taken by sheriff’s department; sex offender arrested after inquiry

WHITE CO., Ill. - Besides the insane antics of Maunie resident Shane Williford over the weekend, the White County Sheriff's Department handled a couple of other serious cases between the end of November and beginning of December.

The theft of weapons was reported last Thursday, November 29, when Sgt. Craig Poole took an incident report from Jesse C. Stover, 54, of Mill Shoals.

Stover advised Poole that he had been away from his residence and upon returning, discovered three guns and a bottle of medicine missing. Stover said he'd left on Nov. 23 around 7 a.m. and returned Nov. 27 around 1:30 a.m. Stover stated he believed entry into the residence was obtained through the front door, even though forced entry was not observed by the deputy.

Stover said that an H&R 20-guage with a Bushnell scope was taken; this gun was in a green soft case leaning up against his bedroom dresser. The gun had a bull barrel and was rifled. Stover said that a 38 Rock Island arm revolver was also taken, this from the bedroom closet shelf. This weapon was in a black hard case with a Masterlock on it; it was loaded with 6 shots and had 6 extra shots in the case. Also, a 12-guage shotgun Winchester brand in a locked black case with a deer on it was taken from underneath the bed in the bedroom.

Poole took information to initiate a law enforcement report on the incident and entered the weapons into the LEADS system.

Also in Sheriff's Department activity last week, it's reported that a 23-year-old sex offender with the dubious name of Chaska D. Ricker, 23, of Carmi, came to the sheriff's office on Tuesday, Nov. 27, inquiring as to why Sheriff Doug Maier had been to his residence earlier.

Maier advised that the department had a warrant for Unlawful Failure to REgister as a Sex Offender, with bail set at $25,000 ($2,500 cash)

Ricker was placed under arrest and according to online documents, he was able to post bond on Nov. 29. Ricker is not included in either Illinois' or Indiana's Sex Offender Registry, and there's no indication of an offense in White County, so it's possible that the public has just been alerted to a juvenile sex offender (meaning the might have been a juvie when he was convicted). Illinois doesn't allow the public to know who sex offenders are if their crimes were committed while they were still considered a juvenile, even after they reach majority age...which is one of those laws that the state needs to change.
