On 7-24-18, Selective Enforcement (SEU) detectives observed the stolen motorcycle being operated by Jerry Wade Hamby, who was also wanted for a probation violation. Upon attempting contact with Hamby, he fled from detectives and abandoned the motorcycle. The motorcycle was recovered and district detectives obtained a warrant for Hamby for Grand Theft Auto.
On 07-29-18, Patrol deputies received information regarding a possible location for Hamby in Spring Hill.
