Sheriff's Blotter: Woman Smuggled Urine in Her Pants to Drug Test

Will County Sheriff's Department reports, June 27 to July 4.

A New Lenox woman smuggled urine inside her pants to a court-ordered drug test last week, police said.

Christina M. Sepsis, 32, of the 200 block of Haines Avenue, was charged with fraud after the drug-testing officer found a small bottle or urine hidden inside her pants June 28 at the Will County Courthouse in Joliet.

Will County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said she couldn't find any previous drug-related arrests in Will County for Sepsis. She added that the drug-testing officer watches people give the urine sample.

"I'm sure this is why," she said.

Man Destroys Mailboxes

Police say Brian M. Bernacki, 30, of the 100 block of Williams Street, sped down his block, drove off the road and hit six mailboxes. He was charged with reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, speeding and six counts of criminal property damage.

Giant Pole Stolen

The plant manager at Crest Industries, 1066 Industry Rd. in New Lenox, told police that someone stole a large steel pole that weighed between 200 and 300 pounds. The pole used to hold a sign but had been lying on the ground for a while before being taken. The plant manager estimated that the pole was worth about $400.
