Interlachen Man Removed from Attic for Arrest
Interlachen, FL: On Monday August 11, 2014 at approximately 4:30 pm Putnam County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested 34 year old Jason William Clymer at 336 Winton Avenue in Interlachen on an active warrant. The warrant was issued in connection with the failure to appear for previous charges of the possession of drug equipment. Upon arrival at the home deputies were granted permission to search the premises for Clymer by the property owner. Clymer was located hiding in the attic and refused to comply with verbal commands to come down. Eventually Sergeant Tim Frill and Lieutenant Scott Surrency entered the attic to assist Clymer in coming down. Clymer continued to refuse to comply at which time pepper spray was deployed and Clymer was taken into custody.
During the search of the home numerous items of drug related paraphernalia were located in plain view which further investigation determined to belong to Clymer. Clymer was placed under arrest and transported to the Putnam County Jail where he was booked on one count of the possession of drug equipment, one count of resisting an officer without violence and one count of failure to appear. Clymer is currently being held without the benefit of a bond.
