A man who was charged with Escape after allegedly walking away from a facility in Madison County, Kentucky in 2016 was arrested in Henderson on Sunday after officers stopped his vehicle on S. Green Street, according to the Henderson Police Department.
HPD says 44-year-old Jeremy D. Stone was arrested on Sunday on a warrant for Escape out of Madison County after officers performed a traffic stop on a U-Haul truck that he was driving.
On Tuesday, officers executed a Search Warrant on the U-Haul truck that Stone was driving and found 17 grams of Meth and other paraphernalia used in trafficking narcotics, according to police.
After already being incarcerated on the Escape warrant, HPD said that stone was charged with Trafficking in a Controlled Substance 1st Degree Methamphetamine Over 2 Grams on Wednesday.
The Kentucky State Police said in October of 2016 that Stone had escaped from Madison County in the Bluegrass Career Development Center in Richmond.
At the time, Stone was in jail serving a sentence for Theft by Unlawful Taking, Burglary 1st Degree, Burglary 3rd Degree, Manufacturing Methamphetamine 1st Offense, and Theft of a Firearm, according to KSP.
After being charged with Escape, Stone was apprehended in Henderson in 2017. Sunday's arrest came after Stone failed to appear at his court date earlier in 2021 for the Escape charge.
HPD says the investigation is ongoing at this time.
