Washington Co. Sheriff: Ronald Graham still on the loose
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police in Floyd County are still looking for a fugitive from New Albany, Indiana.
Police spotted Ronald Graham in a cemetery along Grant Line Road on Sept. 17. They chased him into Clark County where he crashed a car into trees along Atkins Road before taking off on foot.
The Washington County Sheriff's Department says he was spotted at a house Tuesday night, but took off before police were able to catch him.
According to a news release, Graham has been on the loose since Sept. 3. That's when a trooper from the Indiana State Post at Sellersburg stopped Graham in a black Jeep on Interstate 265 East in Floyd County because of a problem with his license plate.
Police say Graham stopped the Jeep, but jumped out of the vehicle and ran into a wooded area near the Interstate. Graham was able to get a head start because he left the Jeep in gear, so the trooper had to chase after the rolling vehicle to put it in "Park."
Graham is 40 years old, 5'5" with brown hair and blue eyes. His last known address was 222 West Market Street in New Albany.
An arrest warrant for Graham was issued out of the Floyd County Superior Court for the charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and resisting/fleeing law enforcement.
After the trooper got the Jeep stopped, he noticed a female, identified as Laura R. Faulkenburg, 26, from New Albany, lying in the front passenger seat. Police searched the Jeep and found meth. Faulkenburg was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of a Controlled Substance and Trafficking with an Inmate.
Anyone who knows the whereabouts or sees Ronald F. Graham should contact police immediately. All callers can remain anonymous.
Crime Stoppers is also offering a reward up to $1,000 for information that leads to Graham's arrest. You can contact Crime Stoppers at 502-582-CLUE (582-2583).
