The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Division was notified on Wednesday at approximately 11:47 a.m. by personnel from Community Corrections at 6215 Dayton Blvd. regarding a person who had a probation warrant. They advised Ledexter Bernard McElvain was in the lobby and he had an outstanding warrant for a probation violation regarding a charge of robbery. 

Detectives from the Fugitive Division responded and observed Mr. McElvain in the parking lot and advised him of the warrant. He ran, jumping into a silver 2002 Ford Taurus, operated by Jaquoyah Brown who drove away.

Detectives followed Ms. Brown southbound on Dayton Boulevard at normal speed, although she would not yield to blue lights and continued attempting to evade law enforcement. 

Red Bank Police responded to assist HCSO and managed to surround her vehicle in the 4800 block of Dayton Boulevard, at which time she was forced to stop.

McElvain was charged with the probation violation warrant and felony evading, while Jaquoyah Brown was charged with aiding and abetting a fleeing felon. Both were transported to the Hamilton County Jail
