Re: Drug bust in Bone Gap. In the early morning hours of Thursday August 30,2018 Edwards County Sheriff's Deputies Travis Roosevelt and Jonah Laws executed a search warrant at a residence located at 1417 CO RD 880 East in Bone Gap. Found during the execution of the search warrant was a quantity of methamphetamine, several items of drug paraphernalia, evidence of a cannabis grow operation along with several growing and drying cannabis plants. Arrested at the scene was Christian T. Hart, white male age:21 showing a address of 1417 CO RD 880 East Bone Gap, IL., also arrested at the scene was Kristie L. Short, white female age:43 showing an address of 206 South 5th Street Bone Gap, IL. These two individuals were arrested and taken into custody, both subjects were initially charged with possession of methamphetamine with more charges expected to be filed. Both subjects were transported to the White County Jail in Carmi pending the setting of bond. This incident began when Richland County Deputy Drew Bunting contacted Deputies Roosevelt and Laws and requested they check at the 1417 CO RD 880 East residence to see if they could find a motorcycle which had fled on a Richland County Deputy a few days earlier and got away from the Richland County Deputy by traveling through a soybean field. Deputies Roosevelt and Laws spotted the motorcycle, Deputies Bunting and McKormick came down from Richland Coumty and seized the motorcycle, with assistance from Roosevelt and Laws, information gained from the motorcycle seizure prompted Roosevelt and Laws to obtain the search warrant that led to drug seizure and subsequent arrests. Charges are merely accusations, a person is presumed innocent unless found guilty by a court of law

RE: VEHICLE CHASE On Saturday August 25,2018 at 2:18 PM Edwards County Sheriff's Dept. Dispatch received a call from Mount Carmel authorities concerning a vehicle that was spotted in Wabash County, the vehicle in question, a gray 2016 Nissan, came back stolen out of Tennessee, and was possibly headed toward Edwards County on HWY 15. At 2:24 PM Edwards County Sheriff's Deputy, Sgt. Gary Ivy, located the vehicle on HWY 15 East headed toward Albion, Sgt. Ivy, joined by Albion City Police Sean Sager, initiated a traffic stop as the vehicle neared the intersection of HWY 15 and HWY 130. The suspect vehicle failed to stop and sped off, heading North on HWY 130 at speeds estimated to be in excess of 100 MPH, the suspect vehicle was driving erratic, the suspect vehicle continued North on HWY 130 until it reached Albion Equipment. At that time the vehicle turned into the Albion Equipment lot and drove through the lot at high rate of speed before entering HWY 130 again, this time heading South, the suspect vehicle then turned into the old Johnson & Briggs Tank Truck Service lot and continued South through a cornfield before coming to a stop on the North side of the Pallet Solution property against some brush on the edge of the ditch. The suspect driving the vehicle, at that time identified only as a white female with blonde hair and possibly wearing a white dress, apparently fled the vehicle on foot heading West initially. By this time other Edwards County Sheriff's Dept. and Albion City units along with units from the Illinois Secretary of State police, and the Illinois State Police arrived at the scene to help with what was now a search for the suspect. A short time later Mt. Carmel units, including a K-9 unit arrived to help with the search, also an Edwards County EMS Ambulance was dispatched to standby close to the scene because of the heat and the unknown condition of the suspect. The subsequent search of the area yielded no results and most of the units left the scene, Edwards County units kept patrolling the area all evening. Later in the evening a Edwards County unit was joined by a unit from the Ill. Secretary of State Police and a private citizen, who is a resident of Edwards County, and who provided a thermal image scope and night vision to help with the search, the area from Albion Equipment to the Edwards County Sportsman's Club was searched along with some areas West of there and some areas in Albion, this search also yielded no results, and the search ended at about midnight. By this time Edwards County Authorities had made contact with authorities in Jefferson County Tennessee and had gotten an identification of a possible suspect in this vehicle theft, the suspect was identified as Sandra Gonzales, white female age 38 showing and address of 300 Chestnut Ridge Rd Afton, Tennessee. On Sunday morning August 26, 2018 the Edwards County Sheriff's Office received a call that a female fitting the description of the suspet was seen walking on a street in Albion, a subsequent check of the area by a Edwards County Sheriff's Deputy yielded no results. A short while later the Edwards County Sheriff's Office received a call from the Wayne County Sheriff's Office dispatch that a truck possibly stolen from a Terminal Street Address in Albion had been located in Wayne County, a subsequent check at the address confirmed that the truck was stolen. Wayne County then notified Edwards County that Wayne County and the Ill. State Police had a female suspect in custody. The female turned out to be Sandra Gonzales, Gonzales is being held in the Wayne County jail on local charges. Edwards County subsequently preliminary charged Gonzales with Reckless Driving, Driving a Vehicle Known to be Stolen and Fleeing and Eluding, Driving while License Suspended/Revoked, Speeding in Excuss of 100 MPH, Disobeying No Passing Zone, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle (2016 Nissan), and Unlawful Possession of a Stolen Vehicle (2000 Chevrolet). More charges could be forthcoming. Charges are merely accusations, a person is considered innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. I want to Thank all the different agencies who assisted the Edwards County Sheriff's Office in this incident it is much appreciated. Sheriff Darby Boewe

The female subject Edwards County Sheriff Dept was looking for has been caught Thank you to everyone keeping a eye out

ATTENTION: The Edwards County Sheriff Office is searching for a female unknown age wearing white dress no shoes and possibly highly intoxicated do not approach her call 911 When we get more information we will have it posted. Thank you
