Checking local police reports provided this morning to Z-1570, Alton Police and the Nuisance Abatement Task Force took to the streets on Wednesday and took a few suspects into custody on outstanding warrants and other charges. Police made a stop in the 3600 block of Coronado and arrested 20 year old Cody Simpson for a parole violation. Additional charges are pending after police also found drug paraphernalia at the home. A total of ten homes were checked as part of the monthly rounds by Alton Police, Alton Building and Zoning, and Animal Control. Illinois State Police also assisted in the operation yesterday.
There was no one new reported held by police in East Alton or Wood River earlier this morning.
