At approximately 11:20 today, Jefferson County Warrant Deputies were attempting to place 34-year-old, Joshua Neil Lee under arrest for outstanding warrants. Lee had already been cuffed and had been placed in the backseat of a patrol unit when he broke free and ran.
Lee is a white male who is 5’10” tall, weighs approximately 150 lbs., has short brown hair and was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and black sweat pants. He should also be wearing handcuffs. The escape occurred in the 8000 block of 4th Avenue South in Eastlake. Lee is wanted for failure to appear on receiving stolen property, possession of controlled substances and possession of marijuana. Because these are failure to appear warrants, there is no bond set.
Jefferson County patrol units, assisted by Birmingham Police units and Star 1 are conducting a search in the 4th Avenue South area of Eastlake. If you should see Joshua Neil Lee, please call 911.
