Two arrested after running from police

After searching the woods for about an hour, police apprehended two men who fled on foot June 29.

Nathan Harris, 25, Nashville, and Jason Beckham, 26, Greenwood, were arrested on preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement. Harris was also arrested for conversion and had a warrant out of Marion County, according to a press release from the Brown County Sheriff’s Department.

At around 11 a.m., deputies were called to the 2000 block of Greasy Creek Road for a report of two suspicious men who were on the caller’s property. While en route from the north, deputies noticed three men and one woman standing in a driveway in the 2100 block of Greasy Creek.

Beckham and Harris fled on foot while deputies were turning around to check on the group. The search continued into the nearby wooded areas, and deputies used GPS tracking to locate the two men, according to dispatch traffic.

While in the woods, several deputies reported seeing the two and telling them to stop running, but the men resisted.

Deputy Chad Williams was able to get close enough to Beckham to tell him to stop. At that point, both men stopped fleeing, approximately two hours after the call came in, according to the sheriff’s department.

Both men were transported to the Brown County Law Enforcement Center.

No official charges had been filed against the men at press time.
