LaSalle County authorities confirm that Lowell Ambler has been taken in to custody in Earlville, Ill. The suspect has been on the run since Sunday.
“We have charges in Lee County for home invasion and aggravated kidnapping,” Lee County Sheriff John Simonton said. “On those bond conditions, he was not supposed to have any contact with family members that were affiliated with this alleged crime. And he did.”
Last month, Ambler was arrested for allegedly holding a Lee County teenager against her will by duct-taping her hands and head. He was released on bond days later but police said he drove to Plainfield, where that victim and her family was staying.
