7/1/19-Warrant issued for failure to appear in court
The arrest on Nov. 4, 2018, comes after a St. Clair County deputy was patrolling Appleton City trying to locate Parker for a follow up to an investigation. The deputy did locate Parker at a residence on East 2nd Street. When Parker was walking towards the deputy he had his hand in his coat pocket. The deputy told him multiple times to slowly remove his hand from the coat. Parker refused. The deputy was able to grab a hold of his arm and place him in handcuffs. The deputy checked Parker for weapons and found a knife. The deputy asked Parker if he had anything on his person that would poke or stick him. Parker admitted to having some syringes in his pocket. Parker gave consent for the deputy to look into his coat pocket. The deputy recovered four syringes, glass pipe, and a plastic baggie containing a white crystal like substance. In another pocket the deputy located a black device, approximately six inches in length, with what appeared to be a wick of some sort.
Parker was placed under arrest. The deputy contacted the Springfield Fire Department’s Bomb Disposal Unit to investigate the device. They arrived on scene and deactivated the device. The bomb tech advised the device was dangerous and illegal to possess. Charges are pending from this incident.
