Maquire Levi, Jeremiah Talai and Hans Wells arrested in assault and reckless endangerment investigation

On 11/14/19 around 10 p.m., officers with the Investigative Support Unit (ISU) were working an on-going investigation involving a suspect with an outstanding warrant. They located the suspect inside a vehicle with three people in the area of Lake Otis Parkway and Abbott Road. The driver of the vehicle failed to yield to officer vehicle’s lights and sirens and attempted to elude.  Officers were able to stop the vehicle in the area of DeArmoun Road and Currin Circle. Three people exited the vehicle and fled on foot. One person, an adult female, remained in the vehicle and was taken into custody. A search for the three suspects was initiated with the assistance from officers with the K9 Unit and the Patrol Division. One suspect was located by K9 Rylin hiding under a trailer. The suspect ignored officer’s commands to surrender. After a final warning, K9 Rylin was released and apprehended the suspect. Officers located the third suspect hiding on an embankment and was taken into custody. The fourth suspect was located after neighbors reported a suspicious male in the area. Officers located him and took him into custody.
 
All four people were questioned by detectives. The adult female was released. The other three were arrested and transported to jail. They have been identified as Maquire Levi (22-years-old), Jeremiah Talai (25-years-old) and Hans Wells (23-years-old).
 
Levi was arrested on an outstanding warrant and faces multiple new charges including Assault 3, Hinder Prosecution 1, Reckless Endangerment, Criminal Mischief 4 and Violate Condition of Release for Felony.
 
Talai was transported to a local hospital for medical clearance due to the K9 apprehension before being transported to jail. He faces multiple charges including Assault 3, Reckless Endangerment, Reckless Driving, Criminal Mischief 3 and Fail to Stop at the Director of an Officer.
 
Wells was arrested on an outstanding warrant and faces a new charge of Resisting Arrest.
 
We want to thank the residents in the neighborhood for their cooperation and assistance in this investigation.
