MT. CARMEL, Ill. - Mt. Carmel Police had their hands full this past week with people coming to town from out of the area to catch trouble, as well as some locals who apparently couldn’t keep their act together, either.

Jasper County warrant served

On May 16, Mt. Carmel Police arrested Haillie N. Batterton, 20 of Mt. Carmel, on a Jasper County (Illinois) Warrant for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Batterton was located at residence in the 100 block of N Market Street. Batterton was transported to the Wabash County Jail where she was issued the warrant and held pending the posting of bond or extradition back to Jasper County.

Domestic Battery charged

Also on the 16th, Mt. Carmel Police arrested Anthony W. Parrish, 23 of Mt. Carmel, for Domestic Battery following a domestic incident at a residence in the 200 block E. 13th Street. Officers were called to the area and, upon investigation, found evidence to indicate Parrish had battered another resident of the home. Parrish was transported to the Wabash County Jail where he was charged and held pending a bond setting by a judge.

Typical Eckiss, sadly enough

On May 18, Mt. Carmel Police arrested Christina M. Eckiss, 31 of Mt. Carmel, for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Endangering the Life of a Child. Eckiss’ vehicle had been called in from a concerned citizen as a reckless driver. Eckiss was located violating a traffic law and subsequently stopped in the area of Eighth and Walnut streets. The arresting officer suspected impairment from alcohol so roadside sobriety testing was conducted. Eckiss showed numerous signs to indicate impairment and was placed under arrest. Eckiss also had a child in her custody at the time. Eckiss was transported to the Wabash County Jail where she was charged for the above mentioned offenses and held pending the posting of bond. An assisting officer took custody of the child until another family member could arrive.

Stolen property recovered

Also on May 18, Mt. Carmel Police arrested Jeffrey S. Keepes, 60, of Mt. Carmel, for Burglary. Police were called to the apartment building located at Fifth and Poplar streets regarding a burglary to one of the apartments. Officers investigated the complaint further and eventually located some of the stolen property at an apartment occupied by Keepes. That, as well as a witness statement, led to the arrest of Keepes for Burglary. Keepes was transported to the Wabash County Jail where he was charged and held pending a bond setting by a judge.

Bringing his cray cray over from the west

On May 19, Mt. Carmel Police arrested Kyle E. Motes, 26, of Highland over on the western side of the state, for Disorderly Conduct. Prior to this arrest police had received numerous complaints about Motes walking around town making statements that alarmed the public (these weren’t made available in police reports; if you know what it was he was saying, feel free to post it here). Due to the nature of the statements one of the alleged victims was allowed to sign a complaint against Motes. Motes was arrested in the 800 block of N. Walnut Street and transported to the Wabash County Jail. Motes was held pending the posting of bond.
