Checking local police reports provided this morning to Z-1570, the Madison County Sheriff's Department arrested 19 year old Charles Lakin of the 400 block of Cain in Roodhouse for possession of a controlled substance. Deputies spoke to occupants of a vehicle parked in the 5300 block of Godfrey Road and arrested Lakin who allegedly possessed morphine tablets.
Authorities also report that the Madison County State's Attorney's Office will not file charges against a 17 year old female student at Alton High who was reportedly caught at school with a hachet inside her purse. The student was confronted and taken into custody for questioning on Tuesday, but prosecutors did not feel there was a threat in this case and opted not to press charges. The girl could still face discipline within the school.
There was no one else new reported held during the local jail checks earlier this morning.
