On Monday, January 4th, 2021 at approximately 9:40 p.m., a Shiloh Police Officer observed a vehicle with an equipment violation and conducted a vehicle stop. A computer check of the vehicle’s driver revealed the driver had a suspended driver’s license. A search of the vehicle incident to arrest revealed multiple firearms and pills later determined to be a controlled substance. This case was submitted to the St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.
