Below are past booking photos of Jeremy Lohman. Jeremy is a suspect in a possible harassment that occurred this afternoon in Akron. When our office attempted to contact Mr. Lohman he fled on foot. If you see Mr. Lohman please contact our office at 970-345-2244.

At approximately 13:00 deputies made contact with a vehicle on 3rd and Main in Akron. During that time a party fled on foot heading north. While deputies looked for the party they requested that ABC daycare go into lock out procedure as a precaution due to the proximity of the daycare and the location of the traffic stop. At this time Washington County Sheriff’s Office does not feel there is any danger to the community but are still looking for the man that fled the scene. He was wearing a blue t-shirt and blue jeans and had a dark beard and mustache. If you see this party please contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 970-345-2244.
