A man wanted by the Sheriff’s Department for theft and other charges has turned himself in.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says 25 year old Jeremy Daniel Loader showed up at the DeKalb County Jail at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday without incident. Loader is charged with aggravated assault, evading arrest, theft of property over $1,000, and violation of parole. Loader’s bond was set at $45,000 on the charges taken by the Sheriff’s Department and he will appear in court on January 29th.. A hold with out bond has been placed on him for the violation of parole warrant.
As WJLE reported earlier this week, Sheriff Ray says”On Monday night January 5th, a deputy responded to a call on Bethel Road, Smithville to investigate a break-in at a residence where several weapons were taken. While the officer was at the home, Loader telephoned and advised the victim that in fact he (Loader) was the one who took the weapons and that he wanted to come back and talk with the victim. After hearing Loader admit to the theft, the deputy left the residence and went down the road hoping to intercept Loader. After making contact with Loader, the deputy approached the driver’s side of the vehicle, but Loader put the automobile in reverse in an attempt to flee. Loader’s vehicle came in such close contact with the deputy that it almost struck him. The deputy, thinking Loader was trying to hit him, fired two rounds, striking the rear tire of Loader’s vehicle. Loader alluded the officer and was last seen on Bethel Road. A BOLO “Be On The Lookout” was issued to DeKalb and surrounding counties. A short time later, Loader’s vehicle was found abandoned on Wood’s Cemetery Road in Warren County. ”
In another case, Sheriff Ray says 28 year old Robert Paul Brawley of Felts Road, Sparta (DeKalb County) came into the DeKalb County Jail Monday on personal business. While at the Jail, Brawley was told he had an arrest warrant on him out of Rutherford County. Brawley turned and ran out of the jail on foot. Deputies pursued Brawley and he was caught a short distance from the Jail. Brawley was charged with escape and evading arrest. His bond was set at $20,000 and he will appear in court on January 22nd.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday deputies went to the home of 23 year old Donald Richard Atnip Jr. on Jefferson Road to serve state warrants on him for burglary and vandalism over $500. After officers made entry into the residence, they found Atnip lying on the floor in a bedroom. When they got Atnip off of the floor, deputies found 12 white pills believed to be percocet on the floor where Atnip was lying. Officers also found a red hollow ink pen barrel containing a white powdery residue in Atnip’s pocket. Besides the burglary and vandalism charges sought on Atnip by a citizen, deputies charged him with possession of a schedule II drug (percocet) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
