White County Sheriff’s Department makes four arrests over weekend

Early Saturday morning, the White County Sheriff’s Department arrested 20 year old Chance Grein of McLeansboro following a traffic stop in Crossville.

At 1:38 am, deputies observed a pickup driving in a reckless manner and initiated the stop.  Grein, the driver, was found to have a suspended license and no valid insurance, and was taken into custody.  A search of the vehicle found two open containers of alcohol and a cigar wrapper containing marijuana.  Grien was charged with disobeying a traffic signal, driving on a suspended license, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, illegal transportation of alcohol, and possession of less than 10 grams of cannabis.  He was transported to the White County Jail, and was later released after posting a $150 bond.

Saturday afternoon, White County Dispatch received a tip that an Enfield man wanted on warrants from White and Wayne Counties was at a residence in Springerton.  Deputies arrived at the residence on Marcus Street at 2:33 pm and took 37 year old Arthur Barger into custody on a White County warrant for failure to appear on a charge of theft and the Wayne County warrant for failure to appear on a charge of possession of methamphetamine.   Barger is being held at the White County Jail on a combined bond amount of $850.

Saturday night, several vehicles became stuck in the mud at the boat ramp near County Road 2140 E under the I-64 overpass.  One individual at the scene, 25 year old Norman Preston Mier of Lawrenceville, was found by Grayville Police to have an active Wayne County warrant for residential burglary, and was taken into custody by the White County Sheriff’s Department.  Mier was taken to the White County Jail, and was later transferred to the Wayne County Jail.

Sunday afternoon, 31 year old Kristine Bailey of Eldorado surrendered at the White County Sheriff’s Department on a White County warrant for failure to appear on a charge of disorderly conduct. Bailey was processed by Jail staff, and was released after posting a $500 bond.
