Brown resisted arrest, resulting in a short scuffle, according to the report, and he was charged with resisting arrest in addition to the service of the numerous arrest warrants on him.
He is being held at the Fayette County Detention Center on charges of theft by unlawful taking, parole violation, receiving stolen property and resisting arrest. Because of the parole violation charge, he cannot bond out.
Lancaster police received a call reporting a reckless driver on Christmas Eve and began pursuing Brown, who was allegedly driving a stolen truck. Brown led Lancaster police and Garrard County sheriff’s deputies on a chase around the county that ended in the secluded Buckeye community, north of Lancaster.
Brown drove through a fence at the intersection of Poor Ridge and Jack Turner Branch, crashed the truck in a field and fled the scene on foot.
Authorities next found brown in Nicholasville on Dec. 26, when Nicholasville police found him in the stolen Jetta parked on Green Street in Nicholasville. After officers identified themselves as police and approached the car, Brown drove the vehicle in reverse and traveled into the backyard of the property. He then drove through several other backyards before returning to Green Street and fleeing the scene, according to the Nicholasville Police Department.
The Jetta was reported stolen from Lexington on Christmas Day.
Warrants were issued for Brown in Jessamine County for receiving stolen property and fleeing and evading police. Lincoln County had already issued a warrant for Brown’s arrest for first-degree burglary. He was also wanted for questioning in regard to recent car break-ins in Mercer County and is a person of interest in recent Boyle County and Danville police cases.
The search for Brown led to the arrest of Quentin Overstreet, 23, of Nicholasville last Wednesday, Dec. 29. State troopers and Nicholasville police executed a search warrant at Overstreet’s Arrowhead Drive residence after receiving information Brown had taken stolen property to that address.
The stolen material found at Overstreet’s residence included a 2009 Honda motorcycle, a 2006 Polaris all-terrain vehicle and five handguns. Crack cocaine and controlled substances were also found inside the residence.
The all-terrain vehicle was allegedly stolen by Brown and another unknown person from a residence off Hall Road in Jessamine County on Christmas. Nicholasville police officer Kevin Grimes said police suspected Brown and his accomplice had loaded the vehicle onto a stolen trailer.
After a scuffle during which police shot and killed a pit bull in the residence and an officer was pulled to the ground by Overstreet, police were able to handcuff the 23-year-old and charged him with third-degree assault and resisting arrest.
The state police charged Overstreet with two counts of receiving stolen property under $10,000, five counts of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, defacing a firearm, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and second-degree possession of a controlled substance. He is currently being held in the Jessamine County Detention Center on a $25,000 cash bond.
Brown was not found at Overstreet’s residence and was at large until he was found in Lexington Wednesday night.
The Lancaster man has a history of running from the police; Chief Deputy Allen Peel of the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office said Brown has had warrants for his arrest issued in 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006, including charges of fleeing and evading police in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006.
