AVOCA — A man from Avoca was briefly incarcerated when borough police say they discovered an arrest warrant that was issued 34 years ago in Illinois.

Criss Guy, 69, of Lampman Street, was arraigned Saturday by District Judge James Haggerty in Kingston on a felony count of arrest prior to requisition. Guy was released on $5,000 unsecured bail, meaning he didn’t have to post any money to go free. He would be liable for that amount, however, if he doesn’t show up for future court proceedings.

Guy could not be reached for comment on Monday.

According to a criminal complaint:

Police stopped Guy for driving a Cadillac with expired inspection and emissions stickers on McAlpine Street just before 8 p.m. Friday.

The officer also learned the Cadillac’s registration expired in February.

Guy told the officer he did not have his driver’s license with him.

When police ran a background check on Guy, the officer learned he was wanted in Cook County, Illinois, for bail violations. A warrant for him was issued Jan. 11, 1984.
