A Missouri man was arrested at a New Windsor campground on Tuesday night after he was found to be in possession of a vehicle reportedly stolen from Missouri.
According to a news release from the Mercer County Sheriff's office, Chad C. Graham, 39, of Barnett, Mo., was arrested at the Shady Lakes campground in New Windsor. The release stated county deputies were called to the campground for a report of a suspicious person, later identified as Mr. Graham.
After talking with Mr. Graham, deputies found him to be in possession of the car, as well as several other items reportedly stolen from "multiple jurisdictions across Illinois and Missouri," according to the release. It was not stated what those items were or from where they allegedly were stolen.
Online records from the Mercer County Circuit Court on Wednesday evening indicated no charges had been filed against Mr. Graham. A spokesman for the Mercer County Sheriff's office could not be reached for additional comment Wednesday.
