Police are on the prowl for a female subject allegedly responsible for hundreds of dollars in damage to a Shiloh resident car last fall.
Swansea resident Shavonna N. Anthony, 27, of 16 Kings Court, was identified during the investigation as the alleged suspect, remains at large and is wanted by police.
Anthony is a woman with brown eyes and black hair standing about five feet, seven inches, and weighs about 220 pounds.
On Friday, September 18, 2015, the Shiloh Police Department responded to a Shiloh residence at 30 Kinney Drive regarding criminal damage to a female victim’s vehicle at a residence.
On Tuesday, St. Clair County Assistant State’s Attorney Elizabeth Nester issued a Class 4 felony warrant for Anthony.
Anthony is suspected of allegedly damaging the victim’s gray , according to court records.
Shiloh Police Chief Jim Stover said there were other circumstances on the table leading the disparity of time between the alleged offense and the when the suspect was charged this week.
“I’m not aware of any other reports of harassment or the like between the (alleged) victim and suspect,” Stover said.
The warrant was reviewed by St. Clair County Judge Thomas Cannady and he set Anthony’s bond at $15,000.
Court records show this is Anthony’s first felony offense in St. Clair County, with nine traffic and petty offenses since 2009.
Anyone with information regarding Anthony’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Shiloh Police at 632-9047.
Charges: what took so long?
Stover said Anthony was given the opportunity to participate in the St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s office program, the Offender Accountability Program.
“It is usually a program reserved for first-time offenders,” Stover said.
Requirements of the Offender Accountability program include community service, mandatory drug testing, payment of program costs, attendance at offender-accountability classes and payment of any fines and fees.
The length of the program runs from 3 to 6 months for the offender. When the participant completes the program, his or her criminal charge is dismissed, however, in the case of Anthony’s alleged September 2015 Shiloh crime, Stover said, “Evidently she failed to meet the standards of the program.”
