[ISP] Fugitives Wanted for Shooting Arrested in Evansville

End Date: 2/23/2014
Entry Description
Vanderburgh County – Indiana State Police, U.S. Marshal’s Service and Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office teamed up last night to arrest two Tennessee fugitives wanted for a shooting incident involving a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Investigator.

Last Wednesday, February 19, Jacob Hammond, 22, of Dover, Tenn., allegedly fired multiple shots at a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Investigator while fleeing from the site of a meth lab. The investigator was not injured. A felony arrest warrant for attempted murder was issued for Hammond’s arrest. An arrest warrant was also issued for Amber Lehman, 29, of Cumberland City, Tenn., for a probation violation. Investigators believe that she was traveling with Hammond.

Yesterday evening, the U.S. Marshal’s Service received information that Hammond and Lehman were possibly in the Evansville area. At approximately 10:00 last night, officers found a silver 2002 Chevrolet Tracker with Tennessee plates in the Economy Inn parking lot located at 701 North First Avenue in Evansville. Officers spotted Hammond and another male near the vehicle. When officers approached the two men, Hammond failed to comply with their orders. Hammond was taken into custody after a Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s K-9 was deployed. Officers also found two handguns on Hammond. He was taken to Deaconess Hospital where he was treated and later released for a dog bite. The other male, Jonathan Buckner, 38, of Cumberland Furnace, Tenn., was arrested after officers found meth making material inside their vehicle.

Officers received information that Lehman was in one of the hotel rooms. After refusing to open the hotel room door, officers forced their way into the room and arrested Lehman without further incident.

All three were taken to the Vanderburgh County Jail where they are being held without bond.
