Two Arrested Following Police Stand Off at Home in Hagarstown in Rural Fayette County

July 10, 2016

Two people were arrested after an hour standoff with police conducting a raid on a Hagarstown home in rural Fayette County early Saturday morning.

Fayette County Sheriff Chris Smith says the Sheriff’s Department with assistance from the ILEAS (Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System) SWAT team went to the home around six Saturday morning and became involved in the standoff.  He reports those inside exited once tear gas was deployed.  

Two of those inside were taken into custody.  41-year-old Shane Hans for possession of methamphetamine, possession of a weapon by a felon, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting a peace officer, and outstanding Fayette and Effingham County warrants.  33-year-old Kayleigh Jo Hughes was arrested on pending charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Resisting a Peace Office and Concealing or Aiding a Fugitive.  

The two were taken to the Fayette County Jail pending formal action in court.
