WILLIAMSON CO.  -- A weekend traffic stop in Williamson County ends with the arrest of a Shawneetown man.

Energy Police stopped a vehicle speeding along Route 13 around 10:25 p.m. Saturday.

Police say the driver, later identified as Durham, and a juvenile in the car could not show identification and gave false information about who they were.

Officers later discovered the car had been stolen from Vitamin World in Carbondale and that the juvenile had just left the Gateway Foundation hours before and was listed as "missing/endangered" by Carbondale Police.

The juvenile was taken to the Carbondale Police Department. Durham was taken to the Williamson County Jail.
