Carmi Police Searching for Man who Eluded Capture; Theft Report; Fairfield Man Arrested in Carmi on Jasper County Warrant

Police are searching for a Marion man who eluded them Friday afternoon in Carmi.  According to a report filed by Carmi PD, 56 year old Harold Littlefield was pulled over around 12:30pm in the alley at 413 7th Street.  Officer Jonathan Lucas approached Littlefield’s blue Jeep Cherokee as he exited the vehicle.  Lucas says the man was in possession of what appeared to be a large amount of Meth.  While attempting to secure both Littlefield and his stash, he resisted and eventually jumped back into the vehicle and fled the scene.

Carmi police pursued and were assisted by the White County Sheriff’s Department as well as the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department and McLeansboro Police.  The chase ended just outside Enfield when officers lost sight of the blue Jeep Cherokee due to traffic and dust from county roads.


A Carmi man is without $285 and change from his Sixth Street Apartment.  Colt Davis filed the burglary and theft report Sunday evening with Carmi authorities.


A Fairfield man is out on bond following his arrest by Carmi Police Sunday afternoon.  53 year old Charles Englebright was arrested on a Jasper County, Illinois warrant for deceptive practices.  Englebright posted $150 cash and walked free on the felony warrant with a new upcoming court date.
