CENTRALIA, IL — Bond has been set at $40,000 for a 42-year-old Centralia man accused of holding a female against her will and for possession of methamphetamine. Centralia police arrested Robert Williams last week in connection with a January 24th domestic disturbance in the parking lot of the Community Resource Center.
According to reports, Williams had let the female go and was leaving in her car when police arrived on the scene. He reportedly left the car a few blocks away and was being sought by police until his arrest Thursday. The meth charge stemmed from meth that was found in his possession when he was being taken into custody at the police station. Williams was formally charged Friday in Marion County Court with Class 3 felony possession of meth and in separate case he was charged with Class 4 felony unlawful restraint.
He’s next scheduled to appear in court April 19th for a preliminary hearing and a first appearance with his court appointed attorney.
