Locust after the department received complaints of four-wheelers driving up and down the road. While in the area, Deputy Heilers reported seeing several people standing outside of a home. He recognized one of them as Jerade James Bonds, who was wanted on a warrant. According to the deputy’s report, Bonds took off running towards the rear of the home with Heilers in pursuit. The chase lasted about 250 yards before Bonds was taken into custody.

Along with warrants for False Informing and Risk of Fleeing Jurisdiction, Mowery says that Bonds is facing preliminary charges of Resisting Law Enforcement (a Class A Misdemeanor), Possession of Paraphernalia (a Class A Misdemeanor) and Possession of Methamphetamine (a Level 6 Felony). His total bond has been set at $9,310.
