St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office

News Release for March 11-18, 2014

 

St. Clair County Sheriff Scott Keeler said deputies made three warrant arrests and responded to a variety of calls during the week of March 11-18. Deputies took reports of burglary, a vehicle accident and vandalism.    

Vandalism in Appleton City

On March 17 St. Clair County deputies assisted the Appleton City Police Department (ACPD) with an investigation of vandalism that occurred to property owned by Terry Powell on East 6th Street, Appleton City.  

Deputies noticed a mailbox and post was pulled from the ground and was lying in the ditch near 6th Street.  Damage to the exterior of the residence included several windows broken out and gutters pulled down from the roof. An interior door was broken into two pieces and most of the contents of the house were broken and scattered. Photos and other evidence were collected from the scene and turned over to the ACPD. 

Non-injury vehicle accident at Appleton City Manor

On March 15 a St. Clair County deputy was dispatched to Appleton City Manor in reference to a non-injury vehicle accident. The investigation revealed Lita Wood, 94, Appleton City, ran into the back of the building with a 2003 Mercury Marquis. It was noted the bottom part of the wall of the building was pushed in approximately three to four inches. The report notes Wood stated she must have stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal.

Burglary reported on SE 475 Road

On March 14, a St. Clair County deputy was dispatched to the Michael Poff residence on SE 475 Road, Osceola, in reference to a burglary complaint. Poff stated when he arrived at his residence he noticed a side door was open and items in the house had been pilfered through. Poff reported a fireproof file cabinet, gold jewelry, camera, laptop, Bose stereo, and a Samsung 48-inch flat screen television was missing from the residence. Poff  said he would make a list of any other items missing that were not noticed while the deputy was on scene. Poff estimated the value of the items stolen at $16,420. The investigation is ongoing.

Criminal summons issued for misdemeanor domestic assault

On March 14, a criminal summons was issued for Justin Swofford, 29, Collins, charging him with class A misdemeanor domestic assault in the third degree. Swofford is scheduled to appear in court on April 4.

The charge stems from an incident on March 8 when a St. Clair County deputy was dispatched to a domestic call at a residence on SE 400 Road, Collins. When the deputy arrived on scene, Swofford was allegedly asking a female victim not to press charges against him. The female reported Swofford put her into a choke hold and had his arm around her mouth. The deputy took photos of cuts on the inside upper and lower lips of the female. She stated when she tried to leave Swofford “grabbed” her and would not let her go. The female said she was able to get to her vehicle, but each time she started to drive off, Swofford would stand in the way of the vehicle. She stayed in her vehicle until a deputy arrived. Swofford voluntarily gathered his belongings and left the residence.
