“We are proud to have community partners like Onstar, who can quickly assist in a time of need. It is one of my top priorities to always utilize the latest and greatest technology in order to keep the residents of Lee County safe, and to know we have partners with the same goal in mind, is incredible,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno. Earlier this week our Sheriff’s Office received a phone call from Onstar informing us there was a possible disturbance and where it was located. Due to the immediate call from Onstar, our deputies were able to respond quickly and take action. While on scene, deputies observed a vehicle and could see a white male, later identified as the suspect, 36-year-old Daniel Shank Jr. in the driver’s seat. After investigating, deputies obtained probable cause to arrest Shank for False Imprisonment, Battery, and Possession of a Controlled Substance. “Without the initial call from Onstar, we may not have been able to respond as quickly as we did,” added Sheriff Marceno. “It is so important to always work closely with our partners so we can serve the public at the highest level.” ...
