Streator Police made a traffic stop and hit the jackpot Wednesday.
Late in the morning, after pulling over 19-year-old Merina Olvera of Streator, police picked up her passenger, 29-year-old Damian Phillips, of the same address. Phillips was wanted on two La Salle County warrants for failing to appear on charges of DUI and driving on a suspended license. He was taken to the La Salle County Jail. Within 90 minutes, police also picked up 31-year-old Shaun King of the same address. They got King on a La Salle County warrant for failing to appear on a theft charge. He posted bond and was released. Meanwhile, the driver, Olvera, was hit with a charge of driving without a valid license and given a notice to appear.
Separately, as all this was happening, Streator police picked up 35-year-old Amy Copeland of Streator. After stopping her vehicle, they arrested her on two warrants out of Livingston County. She'd failed to appear to answer to a charge of domestic battery, and a charge of disorderly conduct. Copeland was also cited for driving while her license was suspended.
Finally, on Wednesday night, Streator arrested 52-year-old Brigitte Hall of Pine Tree Road, and took her to the La Salle County Jail on a warrant for failing to appear on a charge of driving while her license was suspended.
