Edmonson Voice Report:
A Brownsville man is facing multiple felony charges after law enforcement received a complaint of a stolen motorcycle combined with a warrant service.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, around 4pm on Wednesday, February 3rd, law enforcement received a complaint of an individual riding near the 900-block of E Hack Road (Brownsville) on a stolen motorcycle. While patrolling the area, officers said they spotted a male subject working on a motorcycle in the driveway of a residence on E Hack Road; both the subject and motorcycle matched the description received from the original compliant.
According to a press release, when deputies pulled into the same driveway, the subject turned from law enforcement and began walking away; he was seen wearing a green backpack. Deputies then reportedly exited the vehicle, announced themselves, and commanded the subject to stop; however, the subject allegedly ignored the command to stop and ran into a trailer located on the property. Deputies conducted a felony warrant stop and brought the subject out of the trailer where he was identified as Joshua C. Lindsey (28), a resident of the E. Hack Road property.
Deputies then detained Lindsey and surveyed the motorcycle in question, according to law enforcement. Deputies reportedly discovered the motorcycle and its VIN had been freshly spray painted. The backpack Lindsey had been wearing was discovered to have various items believed to be relevant in assisting with the theft of the motorcycle.
Lindsey was charged with:
• Obscuring the Identity of a Machine $500 < $10,000
• Possession of Burglary Tools
• Fleeing or Evading Police, 2nd Degree (on foot)
• Tampering with Physical Evidence
• Receiving Stolen Property Under $10,000
Lindsey was also served a Criminal Summons out of Warren County for Violation of a Kentucky EPO and a Warren County Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear on trafficking and possession charges.
He was lodged in the Hart County Jail.
