Kyle Campbell - If you see him, call your local law enforcement authorities

Page County Sheriff Lyle Palmer says two Shenandoah residents were arrested on Methamphetamine-related charges Sunday night, while a warrant was issued for another person. According to the Sheriff’s report, 24-year old Jana Lynn Gray faces charges of Careless Driving, Failure to Provide proof of insurance , Driving while under suspension, and Possession of drug precursors. And, 23-year old James Tyler Shackelford was charged with Interference with Official Acts, along with Possession of Precursors.

The pair was taken into custody following a brief high speed chase at around 10:22-p.m. Sunday. They were being held in the Page County Jail on $5,000 bond each. The incident which led to their arrest began when a Page County Deputy attempted to stop a vehicle that was sitting with its lights off, on the wrong side of 150th Street, just west of Avenue A.

The Sheriff says when the deputy’s cruiser approached with his emergency lights activated, the car, driver by Gray, took off westbound at a high rate of speed. When Gray lost control of the vehicle, it entered a ditch and came to rest. As she attempted to free the car from the ditch, two men in the vehicle took off on foot. One of the men, identified as Shackelford, was apprehended in tall grass, next to a fence. The other, Kyle Campbell, of Shenandoah, managed to elude Deputies and a Sheriff’s K-9 unit. Poor weather hampered their search abilities.

During their investigation, authorities located in the vehicle, products used in the manufacture of Methamphetamine.

A warrant has been issued for Campbell, charging him with Interference with Official Acts and Possession of Precursors. Anyone with information on his location is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.
