Two Norris City men were arrested by Carmi Police following a traffic stop just before 7 pm on outstanding warrants.

23 year old Justin Raney was taken into custody on White County warrants for failure to appear on a charge of possession of a firearm without a FOID card, possession of drug paraphernalia, and DUI of alcohol.

Another passenger in the car, 19 year old Christain Collier initially gave police a false identity, but when it was determined who Collier really was, it was found that he was wanted in Saline County on two counts of criminal sexual abuse.  He was additionally charged with obstructing identification.

Both Raney and Collier were transported to the White County Jail, where both are being held pending posting bond.
