The Pulaski Police Department would like to release details related to the arrest of Jerrod Brown.
On Friday, Nov. 4, 2022, efforts to apprehend Brown were underway and a $,3000 reward was offered for any information leading to his arrest.
A short time later, a citizen called and stated that they observed who they believed to be Jerrod Brown in the Valley Road area of town.
Members of the US Marshals were in the area and were able to successfully locate Mr. Brown and take him into custody.
The citizen, who will remain anonymous, was not aware of the reward, however, was given the $3000 due to their call, which led to Mr. Brown successfully being taken into custody by the US Marshals. At the time of arrest, Mr. Brown did have possession of the firearm and several other items of evidence were recovered.
Mr. Brown was charged with Grand Theft Auto, Attempted Murder of Law Enforcement Officer, and Possession of Firearm by Convicted Felon as well as served a Probation Violation from another jurisdiction that was issued once this incident began.
At this time, Mr. Brown is being held with No Bond at New River Valley Regional Jail.
