Ashland Police Chief Ryan Brady confirmed to 6 News that 39-year-old Jerrod Altevogt was captured Saturday and has been booked into the Saunders County Jail. He’d been wanted in connection with stolen vehicle investigations in Omaha, as well as the town of Snyder in Dodge County. He is also wanted in Madison County.

Brady told 6 News he was contacted by an Ashland police officer because he was in town in a disabled vehicle -- essentially, he said, a motorist assist. He said the officer identified Altevogt after he tried to give the officer multiple fake names and birthdates. His identity was confirmed via a debit card in his wallet.
