Celina police catch man wanted by U.S. Marshal's Office

By Margie Wuebker
Celina Police nabbed a local man wanted by the U.S. Marshal's Office Sunday night and all it took was a red light violation.
Eric N. Collins, 39, 115 S. Elm St., was taken into custody without resistance after Patrolman Gabe Bartlett spotted him drive through a red light at the intersection of Main and Livingston streets without stopping. The offense occurred at 9:55 p.m.
Collins reportedly drove his semitrailer off to the side of Main Street near the Blake Street intersection after Bartlett, the newest member of the police department, turned on his emergency flashers.
The patrolman checked for possible warrants during the traffic stop and discovered there was an active warrant for the truck driver. U.S. Marshals reportedly issued a warrant for Collins' arrest on April 4 for possession of marijuana.
The department's K-9 unit was summoned. However, a subsequent search of the rig turned up neither drugs nor weapons. The vehicle was towed from the scene and held until representatives of the trucking firm came to Celina.
Collins is being held at the Mercer County Jail pending his transfer to U.S. Marshals jurisdiction.
