Peter G. Smoot, 49, of Carmi, is being held in the White County Jail without bail on a felony charge of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. The White County Sheriff’s Department was called to the Mike Barbre Farm where a Deputy located a Green 2004 Ford F150 Pickup Truck parked on the property. A check of the VIN number and license plates revealed the truck to be reported as stolen by Tonya Williams of Hopkinsville, KY. While speaking with a witness, Smoot was seen riding by the scene in a vehicle that did not stop. The Deputy stopped the vehicle. Smoot was identified as the driver of the stolen truck and was cuffed and placed under arrest. Smoot told the Deputy the truck belonged to his friend, Tonya Williams who was jailed and the truck was towed. Williams wanted Smoot to pay for the tow and storage charges, which he did. When Williams got out of jail she wanted her truck back. Smoot refused to give her truck back until she reimbursed him for the money he gave the tow company.
The driver of the vehicle that drove by, in which Smoot was a passenger, Michael McIntyre, 39 of Carmi, was arrested for Driving on a Suspended License, a Failure to Appear Warrant out of Hamilton County, and a Failure to Appear Warrant out of Williamson County. McIntyre was also taken to the White County Jail and released on $550 bond.
