Carmi Police Take More Meth Off the Streets

Note:  An earlier version of the below story stated Starnes and Voliva were arrested on meth related charges rather than controlled substance and cannabis.  WROY/WRUL News has updated the story and regrets the error.

Carmi Police were busy early Wednesday morning as a traffic stop resulted in the arrest of two Carmi women on drug related charges.

Angela G. Starnes, 39 and 24 year old Billie Jean Voliva, both of 607 Sycamore Street were arrested after they were stopped shortly after midnight this Wednesday morning in the 600 block of Stewart Street.
