SPECIAL PRESS RELEASE
Sgt. Jeremy Stephens


On November 2, 2019, The Chillicothe Police Department received a report of an individual cashing two fraudulent checks totaling over $3,000.00 at a local business. On December 5, 2019, at approximately 7:51 PM, the same individual returned to the business and attempted to cash a third fraudulent check for over $1,000.00. However, this time, an alert employee recognized the individual and his check cashing scheme and alerted management who in turn alerted police. As officers arrived at the business, the individual resisted arrest by fleeing from officers on foot to an awaiting get away vehicle and secondary suspect who was driving the vehicle.

Both subjects were taken into custody with the assistance of the Livingston County Sheriff's Department and a local citizen. The subjects were identified as Jeremy Danielson and Drew Miller, both from the State of Minnesota. Danielson had active felony warrants out of the State of Iowa and Minnesota for charges relating to passing fraudulent checks. Both are convicted felons. In the suspects' vehicle, officers located 19 fraudulent checks totaling more than $14,400.00, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, as well as evidence of criminal activity in outside jurisdictions.

As a result, Danielson and Miller were transported to the police department, processed, and transferred to the Daviess DeKalb Regional Jail pending the filing of local charges. The Chillicothe Police Department is currently now working with numerous outside law enforcement agencies regarding the criminal activity conducted by Danielson and Miller in their cities.

POLICE IN ACTION PROGRAM

Chillicothe Police Department Creates New Police in Action Program - The Chillicothe Police Department believes it is very important to have a working relationship with the public. We believe that interacting with the public will create a trusting relationship and also assist in keeping the community safe. We will be hosting different events where police officers of the Chillicothe Police Department will interact with the public. We will call this new program "Police in Action." The plan for Police in Action is to hold events throughout the year interacting with the community, such as presentations, safety events, sporting events, and youth events. Our first Police in Action event will be teaming with recovering drug addicts. Police in Action will team with recovering drug addicts bringing presentations throughout Chillicothe to assist in cleaning up our community. Our first presentation will be for the Lifepoint Church youth group on February 17, 2016. Our focus of this presentation will be to inform the youth of what the Chillicothe Police Department stands for and what we want to accomplish. We want the youth to hear the testimonies of the recovering drug addicts and the impact that drugs have had on their lives.
