MT. CARMEL, Ill. – Either crims are getting dumber or Mt. Carmel Police are getting sharper catching up to them…and frankly, it appears it’s a situation of BOTH.

Here’s the MCPD blotter for September 9th through the 13th, 2019, with warrant arrests again being listed separately at the bottom of the report, as there have been quite a number of them and they are easier to understand when separated from the general traffic stops or 911 calls.
