The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department is asking for your help in locating 24 year old Jeremy D. Loader of Bethel Road Smithville, who is wanted in a recent burglary and theft case.
Sheriff Patrick 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.
