MT. CARMEL, Ill. – Mt. Carmel Police Chief Ryan Turner has a message for those who want to text and drive in school zones:


Turner has explained in a press release what’s been going on in Mt. Carmel since the start of the 2019-2020 school year:

Since the start of the school year the Mt. Carmel Police Department has increased its presence in the local school zones. This increase has resulted in individuals being cited for using their cell phones while in a school zone.  We would like to remind individuals to hang their phones up while picking up and dropping off their students.  The cost of this citation is $164.00.  Please remember to hang up your phones.

Turner has also submitted the recent days’ arrest report from the Mt. Carmel Police Department:

On August 19, Mt. Carmel Police arrested Kyle W. Dyson, 24 of Mt. Carmel, after a warrant for his arrest was issued for felony theft. A Mt. Carmel Police officer went to the home of Dyson and placed him under arrest. Dyson was transported to the Wabash County Jail and held pending the posting of bond. The investigation into the theft was conducted by the Mt. Carmel Police Department.

Then yesterday, Aug. 20, Mt. Carmel Police arrested John W. Clancy, 55 of Mt. Carmel, after police were called to 8th Street Liquors reference a shoplifter.
