Jefferson County, CO. – Around 2:20 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 9, the JCSO Fugitive Unit, with assistance from Commerce City/Brighton SWAT, Commerce City PD, Adams County Sheriff, Safe Streets Task Force, and Department of Corrections (DOC) Fugitive Unit, were able to apprehend 42-year old Jeremy Buchanan from a 5th-wheel trailer in Commerce City. The trailer was on the side of the road on East 53rd Place, just west of Quebec.
Buchanan was bit by a JCSO K9 while resisting the original arrest back on June 2, 2023. The presence of the Adams County Sheriff K9 today was a factor in why the escapee agreed to peacefully surrender. A big thanks to our law enforcement partners for their assistance.
Buchanan escaped from the Jefferson County Detention Facility on Saturday, Sept. 30.
Buchanan will be returned to the Jeffco Jail, facing new charges of Felony Escape, Misdemeanor Escape, and a DOC Felony warrant for parole violation.
He was originally booked into jail for charges of 1st Degree Motor Vehicle Theft; Violation of Protection Order (3 counts); Violation of Parole; Possession of a Controlled Substance; Failure to Appear for each of the following: Possession of a Controlled Substance, Dangerous Drugs, and a Traffic Offense; Resisting Arrest; Obstructing a Peace Officer.
