Joshua Young- On Sept. 1, Joshua Young, 35, Appleton City was arrested on three St. Clair County warrants. The first warrant charges 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 $2,500 cash only.

The warrant comes after a St. Clair County deputy performed a traffic stop on a vehicle that Young was driving, for a traffic violation in April of 2019. The deputy made contact with Young and asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle. Young gave consent for the deputy to search the vehicle. During the search, a glass pipe with a white residue was located.

The second warrant is for a class D misdemeanor driving with no insurance. Bond is set at $500 cash only. This warrant stems from the traffic stop by a St. Clair County deputy in April of 2019.

The third warrant is for a class D felony possession of a controlled substance, two class D felony counts of delivery or possession of a controlled substance at a county/private jail/correctional center, and a class D misdemeanor unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

The warrant comes after a deputy performed a traffic stop on the vehicle Young was a passenger in for an equipment violation in May of 2019. After getting consent to search the vehicle from the driver, the deputy found a green bag on the floorboard in the passenger area of the vehicle. Inside the bag was a syringe, a plastic bag with a white crystal-like substance, and a pair of “brass” knuckles. The crystal-like substance did field test positive for methamphetamine.

While being transported to the jail, the deputy reminded Young, that if he had anything else hidden on his person, he needed to speak up now. Young stated he did have some pills on his person. Upon arrival, Young was taken in to be searched. The correctional staff did locate the pills and a plastic bag with a crystal-like substance. All evidence was collected.
