From The Trussville Tribune staff reports

TRUSSVILLE — The same day Dillon Kerley bonded out of the Jefferson County Jail, after being arrested by Trussville Police, he was booked into the St. Clair County Jail.

Dillon Kerley, 27, was originally arrested in Trussville on Friday, Feb, 14, 2020, on an obstruction of justice – giving a false identity charge.

Detective Ben Short said the officers arrived on the location in the 100 block of Meadow Lane Court, after receiving a call about a suspicious person. As the officers were identifying the parties on the scene, Short said Kerley gave the officers the wrong name, in order to avoid arrest.

Kerley had a Jefferson County bench warrant with no bond and an outstanding warrant from the Leeds Police Department.

On Feb. 16, Kerley bonded out of Jefferson County and was taken to the St. Clair County Jail for the charges in Leeds. He was given $3,000 in bonds for three shoplifting charges, according to jail records. Jail records show Kerley bonded out of jail on Friday, Feb. 21.

The charges may change after a court appearance. There is no court date set at this time.

Kerley is considered innocent until proven guilty.
