The White County Sheriff's Department has located ELIJAH I. JAMES, DOB 11-19-1989. White County has a warrant for James for UNLAWFUL RESIDENCY OF A CHILD SEX OFFENDER - 500 FEET OF VICTIM. James had been living at 124 North St., Maunie, IL

A request for information was placed on our website and we were able to obtain his location in Evansville, IN. Evansville Police Department located Mr. James and placed him under arrest. He will be transported back to White County after he waives extradition.

Stay Safe this Summer!
As always we want everyone to be as safe as possible, so here are a few things you can do to help keep yourself safe this summer!
  • Service your vehicle! Nothing will ruin an exciting trip like a blown tire or breakdown! So, check the air and tread on your tires, change the Oil and Oil Filter, and check your hoses, belts, air filter, windshield wipers, and coolant levels.
  • Keep emergency items in your car. Extra drinking water, snacks (granola bars, small bags of crackers), a first aid kit, and an emergency kit including a flashlight, jumper cables, paper towels and basic tools can always come in handy!
  • Remove dangerous items from your car. Pressurized products like hair spray and soda can leave a nasty mess. Crayons, candy, lipstick, cleaning products with ammonia/alcohol can also cause nasty problems.
  • Don't leave pets in a vehicle. Temperatures can raise to over 100 degrees in a matter of minutes.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. Regardless of your activity level. Don't wait until you.re thirsty to drink.
  • Stay protected from the sun. Wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 15 or greater.
  • Keep pesky bugs away. Use bug repellant containing DEET to keep mosquitos, and ticks away. Empty items of collected water, buckets and other stagnate water sources can produce hundreds of new mosquitos each day.
  • Swim Safely. Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards and always swim with a buddy.
  • Avoid long term heat exposure. Try to limit your time outside to avoid extreme heat.
  • Don't drink and drive. Impaired driving is a risk to everyone on the road!
  • Don't text and drive. Distracted driving is a risk to everyone on the road too!
Enjoy the summer and stay safe out there!
