JOLIET — If you can’t behave, we’ll find other lodging.
On Saturday, Orland Park police reportedly brought Joy L. Truesdale, 39, to Daybreak Shelter, 611 E. Cass St., where she planned to spend the night.
“But it was reported she was disruptive to shelter staff which culminated in pulling the fire alarm in the dining room,” Joliet Cmdr. Rich Demick said.
Truesdale was charged with disorderly conduct and booked into the county jail.
JOLIET — So much for family keeping you out of trouble.
Around 10 p.m. Jan. 9, police stopped a green 1994 Mercury Cougar in the 100 block of Hobbs Avenue for an alleged traffic violation.
“William” had just been picked up and was wearing his seat belt, so it appeared he would just be held up a little while since his name didn’t match any warrants in the system.
“Until a woman walked up and said she was concerned for her son ‘Steven’s’ welfare,” Cmdr. Rich Demick said.
Since the passenger had identified himself as William, the officers questioned the discrepancy and learned they were actually detaining Steven A. Preston, 21.
A computer check revealed that Preston had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear from LaSalle County.
Assistant State’s Attorney Jason Goode said Preston pleaded guilty to misdemeanor consumption of liquor by a minor, but has not paid his fines.
So in addition to spending a few hours in the Will County Jail before posting a $3,000 bond, Preston was also charged with giving false information to police.
