UNION COUNTY — The Union County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating a man who fled from deputies twice in one day.
Jamie Eugene Brown, 27, 634 Riley Road, Buffalo is being sought by the sheriff’s office for resisting arrest, taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent, and driving under suspension.
According to an incident report filed by the sheriff’s office, the initial charges against Brown grew out of an incident that began shortly at 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon on Buffalo Street in the Buffalo community. The victim told the responding deputy that following an argument, Brown took and drove away in her 2000 Honda Accord which did not have a tag.
The report states that a short time later the deputy spotted the vehicle traveling along the Buffalo-West Springs Highway. Before the deputy could perform a traffic stop, the report states the driver of the vehicle, identified as Brown, turned into the Lil Cricket store parking lot across from the Buffalo Seafood restaurant and fled on foot.
The K9 unit was called to the scene but was unable to locate Brown.
The report states a warrant was signed on Brown for use of vehicle without owner’s consent and that he would also be charged for driving under suspension.
A second incident report filed by the sheriff’s office, states that shortly after 8 p.m. later that evening, a deputy responded to a 911 hang-up call at Brown’s residence at 634 Riley Road, Buffalo. The report states that when that deputy and a second deputy arrived at the residence they saw Brown running through the backyard into the woods. Both yelled for Brown to stop running but he refused to do so and continued to run.
The K-9 tracking team was then called to the scene but was unable to locate Brown.
The report states that a warrant would be sought against Brown for resisting arrest.
Union County Sheriff David Taylor is asking for the public’s help in locating Brown. He said that anyone with information about Brown’s whereabouts should call CrimeStoppers at 864-427-0800.
