By West Kentucky Star Staff
METROPOLIS, IL - An investigation into a suspicious person led to a woman's arrest Saturday in Metropolis. 

According to the Metropolis Police Department, they responded to a call on West 19th Street about a suspicious person looking into vehicles. When they arrived, police spoke to a woman who said she was homeless, but also told conflicting stories. When she consented to a search, police say they found several items that had been reported stolen from a vehicle a few days before.

Police say they were given a false name and birthdate by the woman, who was identified as 31-year-old Tina M. Creech. She was found to be wanted on a warrant for failure to appear in court, so she was arrested. Creech was also charged with theft and obstructing justice.

Creech was taken to Massac County Detention Center.
