PRESS RELEASE

JANUARY 4, 2018

 

EARLY MORNING CHASE RESULTS IN THREE ARRESTS

 

Boone County Sheriff Mike Moore contacted Marion County Sheriff Clinton L. Evans Tuesday morning, January 2nd just before 8:00 a.m. to advise him of a stolen vehicle possibly located in Marion County. Sheriff Evans located the vehicle at the address provided by Sheriff Moore and observed the vehicle exiting the residence.

 

Sheriff Evans attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle but it fled at a high rate of speed. Following a short pursuit, the vehicle came to a stop at a dead end road and three occupants fled on foot. Two females were taken into custody immediately. One male continued to flee and was later located under debris left by high water along Crooked Creek.

 

The following arrests were made:

Curtis L. Heptinstall, age 34 of Boone County; charged with Fleeing and Theft by Receiving. His bond is $10,000.00. He is currently being held in the Marion County Jail.

 

Dawn M. Smith, age 37 of Boone County; charged with Fleeing, Theft by Receiving and Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine). Her bond is $15,000.00. She is currently being held in the Marion County Jail.

 

Amber R. Wierzgac, age 23 of Boone County; charged with Fleeing and Theft by Receiving. Her bond is $10,000.00. She is currently being held in the Marion County Jail.
