Mattoon police make Christmas Eve burglary arrests


MATTOON -- Mattoon police made a Christmas Eve arrest of a man accused of breaking into his relative's home.

Police say William A. Carter, 19, of Mattoon was arrested Tuesday, December 24, at 7:56 p.m. in the 200 block of N. 25th Street.

Police say Carter and another teen went into a relative's home while the relatives were away. The victims then came home during the burglary, and Carter and the teen ran out of the house. The pair were soon tracked down by police.

Officers aren't releasing the other teen's name, since he is underage. Carter is being held in the Coles County jail.
