Crash Leads to Weapons Arrest

Crash Leads to Weapons Arrest

City police were called to an accident last night at Court Street and Longwood Drive.  When police arrived they were told by fire department personnel that everyone involved in the crash had fled, but pointed out others in the area who had taken some items from the vehicles.  When officers approached the group one ran off carrying a black bag.  29 year old Clarence Shipp of Kankakee was captured a short time later.  The bag was later retrieved by police and found to contain a handgun.  Shipp is being held on weapon charges and for obstructing justice.
