According to the News-Gazette, A Hoopeston man is being held at the Champaign County Jail on $10,000 bond following his arrest Tuesday on drug charges.
Kareem J. Marshall, 34, who listed an address in the 500 block West Elm Street, was charged Wednesday with felony unlawful possession with the intent to deliver cannabis.
Marshall is due back in court on Feb. 3.
According to a police report, Marshall went to the front desk of the Residence Inn, 502 W. Marketview Drive, C, on Tuesday and asked the clerk on duty for a key to a room that was registered to his girlfriend. The clerk reported that Marshall smelled like marijuana and was carrying a large, long duffel bag. The clerk refused to give Marshall the key since he was not a registered guest.
According to the News-Gazette, A 20-year-old Danville man was back behind bars Wednesday, one day after escaping from the Vermilion County Jail by posing as another inmate.
Larry Woodard and his friend, Tyler Jones, 19, also of Danville, were both locked in a temporary holding cell at the county jail — with three other inmates — following their arraignments around 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Jones, who had been arrested Monday on a traffic warrant, was scheduled to be released from jail following his arraignment.
Woodard was arrested the same day on a warrant for violating terms of his drug court probation, stemming from a burglary conviction.

According to the Paxton Record, The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has notified Iroquois Memorial Hospital that it has performed exceptionally well in preventing hospital-acquired conditions and will not be financially penalized by CMS.
Earlier this year, a report, based on unverified data, circulated that the Watseka hospital was among numerous hospitals in Illinois with a high infection rate.
“We are extremely pleased that CMS has verified that IMH’s infection rate is very low,” said IMH’s chief executive officer, Chuck Bohlmann. “This is a testament to the quality health care provided by our physicians and nurses.”
Twenty-five percent of the hospitals with the highest rates of hospital-acquired conditions will have their payments from CMS reduced by 1 percent. Those conditions include a group of reasonably preventable conditions, including infections that patients did not have upon admission and developed during the hospital stay.
