VINTON — Gallia Sheriff Matt Champlin announced that on Monday a fugitive from justice who is wanted by several agencies throughout the tri-state area was captured in Gallia County.
“Our agency received a tip that a wanted person, Alexis Williams, 25, of Piketon, Ohio, could be at a residence on State Route 160 just north of the Village of Vinton,” said Champlin. “We were able to locate Ms. Williams at the residence which was described and she was taken into custody without incident. This is yet another example of how good communication between the citizens of Gallia County and our law enforcement community is ridding our county of the criminal element.”
Champlin said Williams was wanted for a variety of theft and drug related charges by various law enforcement agencies.
Champlin encourages the public to contact his office at 740-446-1221 or through the anonymous tip line at 740-446-6555 to provide any information that they may have regarding crimes being committed in Gallia County.
