Rockville man arrested in St. Clair County

Clinton Oehring
On Aug. 17, Clinton Oehring, 25, Rockville, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with class C felony possession of a controlled substance and class D felony resisting arrest for a felony. Bond is set at $20,000 cash or surety.

The charges stem from an incident the previous day when St. Clair County deputies were on patrol on H Highway and conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle Oehring was driving. When contact was first made with Oehring he identified himself as another individual. 

During the investigation a clear glass container with residue inside that field tested positive for methamphetamine was located in his possession. While being taken into custody, Oehring fled on foot and was taken into custody after a short chase. A bag with a white powdery substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine was also located in the vehicle.
