Contempt, Firearm Suspect on the Loose

Posted: Updated:

Jonathan Williams is wanted by Chatham County Sheriff's and Savannah-Chatham Metro Police, and was just indicted for possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime. But that is hardly his first run in with the law.

"Possession of a firearm back in the past, aggravated assault, armed robbery, carrying a concealed weapon," said Chatham County Sheriff's Deputy Lester Ellerbee.
 
Williams has been in and out of jail since 2003, and now on the run again.

"Pretty sure he knows we are looking for him, so he's in hiding right now," explained Ellerbee. "He might have a lot of friends so he'll jump house to house. It's hard to locate him."

But investigators do have an idea where Jonathan Williams may be.

"Last place location was in the Carver Heights area, off of Gwinnett," explained the Deputy. "Last address Westside Savannah, Bay Street area."

If you can help find Jonathan Williams call Chatham County Sheriff's, Savannah-Chatham Police or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.

Remember, if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
