High Risk Traffic Stop in Sheridan Leads to Arrests

A high risk traffic stop in Sheridan Wednesday morning resulted in the arrest of two individuals. According to a media release from the Sheridan Police Department, the PD received information early Wednesday morning from law enforcement in Minnesota that a suspect with outstanding arrest warrants may be traveling to Sheridan. The suspect, 31-year-old Jerry Frausto of Buffalo, WY, was reported to be driving a stolen car, and had five arrest warrants that included seven felony charges. The felony charges included drug and firearm offenses. It was also relayed that the suspect was in possession of firearms.

Sheridan police officers located the suspect vehicle on Odell Court at approximately 9:50 Wednesday morning and conducted a high risk traffic stop. Officers arrested Frausto on the outstanding arrest warrants.  High risk traffic stops involve officers displaying their firearms to cover vehicle occupants suspected of a serious violent crime or when information known indicates the violator may attempt to flee either by vehicle or foot. 22-year-old Jessica Ammerman of Backus, Minnesota was arrested for possession of suspected methamphetamine.  Frausto and Ammerman were taken into custody without incident. The status of the vehicle is under investigation.
