Driver, passenger arrested after car chase

FRANKLIN - A Dayton man was arrested Friday after leading Franklin police on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash.

Police said Jeffery Dove, 33, ran a red light around 10 p.m. near State Route 73 and Interstate 75. He raced through parking lots and went the wrong way on one-way streets at speeds as high as 80 mph.

Dove was slightly injured and was treated and released from a nearby hospital. A passenger, Dana Lamb, 33, of Beavercreek, was also treated and released, and was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police charged Dove with felony fleeing and eluding. And because Dove had a passenger in the car, police added a kidnapping charge.

Dove remained in the Warren County Jail Saturday on $12,500 bond.

Man wanted in Tot Lot investigation arrested

GOLF MANOR - A Cincinnati man wanted in connection with the Tot Lot Posse was behind bars Saturday.

Cincinnati police and the FBI arrested Jonte Sanders, 22, of 1577 Linn St., at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, according to officials.

Police said Sanders, who faces federal conspiracy and drug charges, had been wanted since May.

"We knew his grandfather had died and figured he'd probably come back to Cincinnati for the funeral. We just guessed right," said Lt. Stephen R. Kramer of the Cincinnati Police Department's Criminal Investigation Section.

The FBI and Cincinnati police staked out several spots in the area, according to officials. Sanders was spotted at one of the locations, a parking lot at Reading Road and Seymour Avenue.

He was being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center Saturday.

Another alleged member of the West End gang, Jimmar Long, 21, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

Three others linked to the gang have pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges within the past month.

Still sought in connection with the Tot Lot gang are Ampelio Rodriguez of Arizona; and Rosario Corales, 25, and Joaquin Sotelo, 38, both of Fairfield.

Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
