A Goshen man is in the Brown County Adult Detention Center after leading Sheriff’s deputies from four departments and State Highway patrolmen on a four county chase Wednesday, Nov. 3.
Clermont County Chief Deputy Rick Combs confirmed that his deputies arrived at a home on Marathon Edenton Road at about 1:30 p.m. to serve a warrant for Jerrod Messer Jr.’s arrest when he fled the scene.
According to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office the 20-year-old Messer drove a stolen truck through Clermont, Brown, Clinton, and Highland Counties for three hours while being pursued by officers. In addition to police cruisers the Highland County Sheriff’s Office and the State Highway Patrol employed planes to track Messer.
The Brown County Sheriff's Office reported that two of their cruisers were damaged in the pursuit and one deputy was transported to Mercy Mt. Orab Medical Center where he was treated and released.
The Brown County Sheriff's Office reported that Messer was wanted in connection with a series of thefts in multiple counties involving vehicles, trailers, and fuel tanks.
Messer was charged with two counts of felonious assault on a police officer, receiving stolen property, and felony fleeing and eluding in Brown County.
Combs said charges in Clermont County are pending a Grand Jury hearing. He declined to comment on the case further.
Charges in Highland County are also expected.
