MARION COUNTY, IL — A Thursday night traffic stop landed two people in the Marion County Jail in connection with burglary to a man’s Centralia home while he was in jail.
Police arrested 48-year-old Darin King, of Centralia, and 34-year-old Elizabeth McNeil, of Hoyleton, following the stop in the 800 block of North Lincoln.
King was arrested on a petition to revoke his probation on a conviction for possessing less than 5-grams of methamphetamine.
He was charged Friday in Marion County Court with Class 1 felony residential burglary as was McNeil. His bail was set at $10,000 while hers was set at $5,000.
They’re both accused of entering an apartment in the 200 block of South Locust sometime between July 31 and August 2, 2019.
The resident identified King and McNeil after viewing video surveillance from inside his apartment.
Two others, 32-year-old Carolyn Pribble and 38-year-old Jeremy Lewis, both of Centralia, were arrested earlier in connection with the same burglary but were ultimately charged with other crimes.
