MT. VERNON, IL — A Sunday night traffic stop in Mt. Vernon resulted in the arrest of a 59-year-old Evansville man on multiple charges. According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, a deputy stopped a black 2010 Nissan on Aviation Drive. During the stop and subsequent investigation, Corwin W. Ward was arrested for alleged Driving While License Suspended.

Further investigation into Ward and the vehicle he was driving revealed evidence of other crimes. Officers of the Mt. Vernon Police Department responded to assist the investigating Sheriff’s Deputy. Ward was eventually transported to the Jefferson County Justice Center, where he was incarcerated for Possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver 15-100 grams and Possession of LSD. He was formally charged Monday in Jefferson County Court with Class 1 possession of between 15 and 100 grams of meth, and Class 4 felony possession of a controlled substance.

Bond in the case was set at $60,000 and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 2nd with a first appearance with a court appointed attorney.
