On November 7, 2017 at approximately 3:15PM, Lebanon Police Officers proceeded to the Kilton Library to locate an individual regarding an ongoing computer crime investigation. The officers made contact with Jacob J. Seace, age 18, of Lebanon and began to speak with him. During the conversation, the officers developed information that Seace’s cell phone contained evidence of a crime and attempted to seize it, at which point Seace attempted to flee with the phone. Officers were able to grab ahold of Seace, who resisted, and he was taken to the ground where he continued to resist and was handcuffed.
Seace was taken into custody and charged with Obstructing Government Administration and Resisting Arrest and Detention, both Class B Misdemeanors. Seace was subsequently released on $500 Personal Recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the Lebanon District Court on January 8, 2018. Additional charges may be forthcoming.
