Woman held on drug, parole charges
Reports of a wanted woman being sighted in the Palestine area led to her arrest following a traffic stop.

Palestine Police Chief Jeff Besing, was alerted about 3 p.m. Thursday by Crawford County Deputy Michael Delaney that a wanted female subject, identified as Kara K. Siler, 32, Oblong, was possibly in the Palestine area. Besing was able to locate a vehicle description Siler would be in and located it about 7:59 p.m.

Besing said the vehicle, which was being driven by Dustin K. Biehl, 30, Robinson, was spotted traveling west on Illinois Route 33, before it was pulled over for a traffic stop. During the stop Besing and Officer Brandon Carpenter found that Siler was a passenger in the vehicle.

Siler was arrested on a Crawford County warrant for unlawful possession of a controlled substance and an Illinois Department of Corrections warrant for a parole violation.

Suspecting that the vehicle may contain drugs, the officers authorized a K-9 search of the vehicle by Robinson K-9 Officer Nathaniel Nicklaus and K-9. Items of suspected drug paraphernalia and suspected cannabis in an article of clothing worn by Siler. Biehl was also found in possession of both of those items.

Biehl was issued two citations for those possessions and released afterwards. Meanwhile Siler was issued citations as well and placed under arrest on the warranted charges, along with an obstruction of justice charge for providing false information in an attempt to conceal her identity due to the warrants.

Siler was taken to Crawford County Jail where she is being held pending extradition on the DOC warrant and posting of bond on the remaining charges.
