Frankfort, Ind. – A man from California has been apprehended by the Frankfort Police Department (FPD) after crashing into a fully marked police car and fleeing the scene early Saturday morning. The incident occurred around 6:30 a.m. when the suspect, identified as 35-year-old Cristian DeJesus Calvourbina, struck the parked police car at the Frankfort Police Department premises.
The police car, a new 2023 model awaiting equipment outfitting, sustained significant damage, estimated to cost between $3,000 and $4,000 to repair. Calvourbina was found hiding in bushes outside a nearby trucking company off Barner Street by a family member of a Frankfort police officer on Sunday morning.
According to FPD Chief Scott Shoemaker, Calvourbina claimed he reported the crash after leaving the property, alleging he was being chased by four individuals who were not present at the scene. However, FPD denied this claim and believes that the suspect was not specifically targeting police officers and made no threats of violence toward them.
