Charges were filed fol­low­ing a four-month long inves­ti­ga­tion by the Union Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office of metham­phet­a­mine and hero­in activ­i­ty at the res­i­dence locat­ed at 115 Kohler Street in Anna.  On August 16, 2013 Sheriff’s Deputies exe­cut­ed a search war­rant and arrest­ed Ty Dal­ton, Jeanne Dal­ton and Frankie Fowler at the 115 Kohler Street res­i­dence.  Each of the sev­en defen­dants was sub­se­quent­ly indict­ed by the Union Coun­ty Grand Jury.  Each is cur­rent­ly being held on $100,000 bond at the Jack­son Coun­ty Jail in Mur­phys­boro.  The res­i­dence at 115 Kohler Street and two vehi­cles were also seized as part of the inves­ti­ga­tion and for­fei­ture actions filed by the Union Coun­ty State’s Attorney’s Office are pend­ing in Union Coun­ty Cir­cuit Court.  The Jack­son Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office, Mur­phys­boro Police, Anna Police, Illi­nois Depart­ment of Nat­ur­al Resources and Union Coun­ty Ani­mal Con­trol assist­ed in exe­cu­tion of the August 16th search warrant.

The Union Coun­ty State’s Attorney’s Office reminds the pub­lic that charges are not evi­dence of guilt.  A defen­dant is pre­sumed inno­cent and is enti­tled to a fair tri­al in which the gov­ern­ment has the bur­den of prov­ing guilt beyond a rea­son­able doubt.
