Police Arrest Herrin Man on Vehicle Theft, Property Damage Charges

HERRIN – A Herrin man is facing several charges after the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home on Chittyville Road Friday where deputies had previously taken a report of a stolen vehicle.

According to the sheriff’s office, upon arrival deputies discovered that the suspect, identified as Christopher D. Gravett of Herrin, who had previously stolen the vehicle from the home had returned and was hiding.

Deputies subsequently located Gravett hiding under a large pile of items in a room within the home. Gravett refused deputies orders to come out and then began resisting, at which time a taser was deployed.

Gravett was arrested and booked into the Williamson County Jail on charges of Motor Vehicle Theft, Resisting a Peace Officer, Criminal Damage to Property and Criminal Trespass to Land.

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office thanked Williamson County State’s Attorney Ted Hampson for his assistance.
