 News Release March 25-April 1, 2019

            Sheriff Scott Keeler reported deputies made one arrest and took three stealing reports during the week of March 25-April 1, 2019.

Warrant Arrests

Ronald Hines

Ronald Hines- On March 26, Ronald Hines, 33, Branson, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with a class D felony possession of a controlled substance and a class D misdemeanor unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond is set at $10,000 cash or surety.

The warrant comes after a St. Clair County deputy performed a traffic stop on the vehicle that Hines was driving for a moving violation. After initial contact, the deputy asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle. Hines gave the deputy consent to search the vehicle and then revoked it before the deputy could grab his gloves. A K9 unit was called to the scene. The K9 performed an exterior sniff test of the vehicle and did alert to the odor of narcotics. During the search of the vehicle, a broken glass pipe was recovered with a white crystal like residue in it. Also located were five hide-a-cans. Inside two of the cans were plastic zip lock bags containing a white crystal like substance. The evidence did field test positive for methamphetamine.
