Wood River Police were holding 33 year old Jessica Watson of the 300 block of Picker in Wood River for robbery.

Alton Police arrested two people for possession of heroin.  41 year old Matthew Rea of Batchtown and 29 year old Ronnie Bowman of Jerseyville were charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Alton Police also responded to a fire at a mobile home in the Enchanted Village Mobile Home Park off Fosterburg Road on Tuesday morning after learning there were unsecured guns inside the residence.   Alton Fire crews responded to the small fire around 7:30am and had it put out within a few minutes of arriving and continue to investigate the cause.  One woman inside the home had escaped before crews arrived, but was taken to Alton Memorial Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be minor injuries.   Police took the guns for safe keeping until the owner was able to retrieve them. 

There was no one being held in the East Alton Jail earlier this morning.
