The warrants were issued for the arrest of Ernest T. Washington after a domestic violence related investigation was conducted by the O’Fallon Police Department.

Washington, who is not in custody, is on intensive probation for domestic battery and has an extensive criminal history.
He is known to frequent the O’Fallon, Belleville and Clinton County areas, and is scheduled for an appearance Wednesday in Clinton County Court on a 2014 misdemeanor retail theft charge.
The O’Fallon Police ask the public to call 9-1-1, the O’Fallon Police Department (618-624-4545), or their local police department if they see or know the whereabouts of Washington.
Washington should be considered extremely dangerous.
