The fugitive and another person were arrested on Jennifer Lane.
Two people, including one felony fugitive, were recently arrested by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) with the assistance of K-9 Zaki.
According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox, on Feb. 23 an LCSO fugitive investigation led deputies to a location on Jennifer Lane in Chillicothe in search of Jeffery Gordon Davenport, 36, who was wanted on Livingston County arrest warrant for class A misdemeanor child support violation and a Missouri Parole Warrant. “Davenport had allegedly run from probation/parole officers last week and eluded other law enforcement during that search for him,” Cox said. Davenport had been on the run since Jan. 28.
“Officers announced their presence without a response from anyone in the home,” Cox said. “Once Deputy Nicholas Leadbetter clearly explained (K-9) Zaki was coming in to search the home for a fugitive Mr. Davenport quickly surrendered and reported he did not want to meet Zaki in that manner.”
Deputies also seized multiple methamphetamine smoking pipes and a small quantity of methamphetamine. The report will be submitted to the prosecuting attorney for consideration.
Amy L. Nieman, 48, Chillicothe, was also arrested for alleged hindering prosecution in this matter. Cox stated she was found hiding with Davenport. Both were taken to the Daviess/Dekalb Regional Jail. Nieman has since been charged in Associate Court with alleged failure to obey a judge's order on original felony possession of methamphetamine.
