South Dakota fugitive arrested in Bellevue

(Bellevue, NE) -- A South Dakota fugitive is arrested in Bellevue.

Bellevue Police say just before 9:30 Sunday morning, officers responded to the WalMart near 15th and Cornhusker in an effort to locate a suspect wanted out of South Dakota for a sex offender violation. Police say the suspect, 44 year old Jeremy Ammerman, was located in the parking lot, sitting inside of a Lincoln Navigator. Investigators say Ammerman had a female associate, 47 year old Kellie Peterson of Wisconsin, with him. BPD says Peterson was outside of the vehicle when officers arrived and was taken into custody without incident in the parking lot of Walmart.

Police say Ammerman fled in the vehicle, but officers did not pursue. Investigators say the vehicle was later found, unoccupied, in the Highland Meadows Apartments less than a mile away. BPD says officers searched the area, but were unable to locate Ammerman, so they then notified local businesses of Ammerman and showed a photo of him.

BPD says around 6:00 Sunday night, a local business off of Chandler Road called and stated that Ammerman had been inside the business and left on foot. Investigators say officers responded to the area and located Ammerman in the field to the south of the car dealerships at 23rd and Chandler Road.

Ammerman was taken into custody and was booked into the Sarpy County jail for Drug Charges, Flight to Avoid Arrest, Willful Reckless Driving and his Warrant of out South Dakota. Peterson is facing charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Marijuana less than an ounce and Drug Paraphernalia
