Outstanding Traffic Investigation
On 8/02/2022 Officer Brad Penet conducted a traffic stop while on patrol. During the traffic stop Officer Penet arrested the passenger for two warrants (Perry and St. Clair County). Officer Penet conducted a vehicle search and seized approximately 127 grams of cannabis (4.5 ounces/felony amount)
The driver was cited for Unlawful Possession of Cannabis and released. The passenger was transported to St. Clair County Jail for the warrants.
Officer Penet’s pro-active patrol method has resulted in removing dangerous drugs from the Village of New Athens resulting with additional safety for the residents.
I am grateful to have Officer Penet in our police force.
