Five Polk County residents have been jailed after one evaded law enforcement on a four-wheeler. 

On Wednesday, Polk County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Detectives were conducting traffic enforcement in the Indian Springs Subdivision of Polk County, where they encountered a male subject on a four-wheeler. After the officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the subject fled.

The four-wheeler was later found at a nearby residence, where detectives received information in regards to the identity of the occupants. The occupants, who were not onscene, were quickly identified as Cody Lamar White and Kaylee Collier, both of Indian Springs.

White was known by the Sheriff’s Office to have an active felony possession of methamphetamine warrant. Additional units from the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division and Criminal Investigation Division soon joined in the search and subsequently located both White and Collier, hiding inside a travel trailer, also located in the area of Indian Springs.

As a result of this investigation, a search warrant was obtained and multiple arrests were made.

Jonathan Tyler Zuellig, 27, of Livingston, was charged with expired plates, no drivers license, no insurance and an unsecured child less than one year old (not in car seat).

Collier, 23, of Livingston, was charged with hindering apprehension of a known felon and possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).

White, 28, of Livingston, has charges of evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of body armor by a felon, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), and an outstanding warrant for possession of methamphetamine.

Brian Keith Lafferty, 55, of Livingston, was picked up on three outstanding warrants.

Eric Jasper Scroggins, 41, of Livingston, had seven outstanding warrants.

An Onalaska man was jailed for assault with a deadly weapon after an argument between roommates.

On Sunday, Onalaska police were dispatched to 145 Myers Street in reference to an assault.

Upon arrival, law enforcement met with both the suspect and victim. The victim stated that during an argument, David Alan Claycomb, 66, of Onalaska, produced a knife. The victim stated it was at this point Claycomb proceeded toward him and cut him with the knife on his stomach.

After he was detained, Claycomb stated he and the victim were arguing and the stabbing victim attacked him. Claycomb attempted to show police a mark on his face near his left eye, yet police were unable to see an injury. Stating he pulled a knife due to how big the victim was, Claycomb said he felt the need to protect himself.

The stabbing victim stated he and Claycomb were roommates living together in what police describe as a small travel trailer, and he did not want to file charges. Police were able to locate the knife used during the assault, but did not find blood. Claycomb admitted to wiping the blade before police arrived.

Police also spoke to an on-scene witness, who stated she did not see the assault, but heard the commotion and attempted to clean up the mess in the house after the altercation ended. Due to conflicting statements and a lack of evidence supporting the claim of self-defense, Claycomb was placed into custody and booked into the Polk County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
