Checking local police reports provided to The Big Z, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department arrested three people following an incident in Moro last weekend. 22 year old Gavin Ladd and 19 year old Graham Ladd, both of the 600 block of West Moro Road, and 36 year old Kelly Ann Hart of the first block of Cypress Drive in Bethalto, were charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, theft under $500 and theft over $500. Police say the thefts appear to be connected to drug activity as all three suspects allegedly had items connected with heroin use on their persons when they were arrested.
The Sheriff’s Department also arrested and charged 18 year old James Ellis of the 2500 block of Lincoln Avenue in Granite City for retail theft.
East Alton Police were holding 45 year old Barbara Johnson of Fern Street in East Alton for retail theft.
