Public assistance sought in locating wanted man in Indianapolis

Indianapolis, Indiana – The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) has issued a public appeal for assistance in tracking down a man wanted on serious charges. Joshua Chambers, 21, is the focus of this search, wanted on a warrant for firearms and narcotics offenses. The urgency of the situation is underscored by the nature of the charges and a recent violation of his pretrial release conditions.

Chambers’ legal troubles began in December 2022, when he was arrested and charged with multiple offenses. These charges include dealing in methamphetamine, dealing in a controlled substance, possession of a narcotic drug, possession of a machine gun, and unlawful carrying of a handgun. The severity of these charges paints a picture of a potentially dangerous individual.

A key turn of events occurred on January 19, when a warrant was issued for Chambers’ arrest. The reason cited for this warrant was a violation of a condition of his pretrial release. This development heightened the need for law enforcement to locate and apprehend Chambers.

The IMPD’s efforts to capture Chambers intensified on January 25. Officers attempted to stop a vehicle registered to Chambers near East 34th Street and North Keystone Avenue. However, the situation escalated as the vehicle, believed to be occupied by Chambers, did not comply with the officers’ traffic stop attempt. Instead, it fled the scene, leading to a police chase.

The pursuit ended near East 53rd Street and Central Avenue, where the vehicle crashed. Two individuals, one presumably Chambers, fled from the vehicle. Despite efforts, IMPD officers were unable to locate the subjects who fled the crash scene.

In a call for community support, the IMPD has urged anyone with information about Chambers’ whereabouts to contact them. Citizens can call 911 for immediate reports or provide anonymous tips. Anonymous tipsters can reach out to Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana by phone at (317) 262-8477, use the P3tips app, or visit Anonymous tips leading to a felony arrest may qualify for a reward of up to $1,000.
