A Statement from Police Chief Byers of the MTPD concerning activity that took place August 4, 2015
"On Tuesday, August 4, 2015 officers and detectives of the Madison Township Police Department assisted the United
States Marshall's Office Fugitive Task Force. The task force was searching for an adult male, Madison resident, who was
the subject of felony warrants from various jurisdictions. The male was known to have a history of violence.
After checking several locations, the male was eventually located and taken into custody by the task force and MTPD detectives. While checking one location for the male, an adult female was located who was known to have warrants for her arrest from the Madison Township Police Department. The female was taken into custody by the Madison Township Police Department and transported to the Lake County Jail. There were no known injuries reported and both arrests were made without incident."
The Reverse 9-1-1 system is used for emergency situations, such as an Amber Alert for a missing person in the area; major flooding issues; or public safety concerns. Lake County residents can register their cell phones with the Lake County Emergency Management Agency at www.lakecountyohio.gov/ema. The link is the sixth one down on the left-hand side of the page.
