Seven law enforcement agencies, including the U.S. Marshal Service, helped apprehend a wanted Centerville man Monday morning.

At 11 a.m., the Wayne County Drug Task Force, U.S. Marshal Service, Richmond S.W.A.T., Richmond Police Department, Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, Indiana State Police, and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office successfully located and apprehended Joshua R. Adams.

According to a press release from Wayne County Sheriff Jeff Cappa, Adams was apprehended by S.W.A.T. members at 4168 W. Tingler Road while attempting to flee through an open field area.
Adams was transported to Reid Health, where he was checked and then transported to the Wayne County Jail.

Adams, 31, was lodged on an outstanding warrant for dealing in methamphetamine, Level II felony; dealing in cocaine, Level II felony; carrying a handgun without a license, Level 5 felony; resisting law enforcement, Level 6 felony; possession of a controlled substance, Level 6 felony; and possession of marijuana, Level 6 felony. Adams’ address is listed in jail records as 1317 Kellam Road in Centerville.

The warrant stems from a pursuit that occurred on April 14 on the west side of Richmond. Cappa said at that time, several firearms and a large quantity of drugs were confiscated.

Several law enforcement agencies have been working together to locate and apprehend Adams.

More arrests are expected stemming from the investigation, Cappa said.
