Former Lasalle County Sheriff’s Deputy Lowell Maxwell Ambler “Peacefully Taken Into Custody” at House in Earlville Thursday AM

Streets of Chicagoland blue sky

Fugitive and former La Salle County deputy Lowell “Max” Ambler was peacefully taken into custody Thursday morning October 5, 2017 and transported to Lee County Jail, following a four-day manhunt, and after police contacted Ambler at a house shortly after 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

Ambler had hijacked a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe in Plainfield Wednesday morning and returned to Earlville.

Police surrounded a house at 316 North Second Street in Earlville, and Ambler surrendered to police as he exited the house sometime after 9:30 a.m., and after he communicated with his father — a former state trooper and Earlville police chief — during a negotiations period.

Ambler was charged September 15, 2017 with home invasion and aggravated kidnapping, following an incident in late August 2017 in Compton — allegedly holding a Lee County teenager against her will by duct-taping her hands and head. Ambler was released on bond days later, but violated bond conditions when he drove to Plainfield, where his victim was staying with family.
