Man charged in domestic dispute
DERRY TOWNSHIP — State police at Greensburg arrested Jeremy Lamb, 43, of Homer City, and charged him with numerous offenses following a report of a domestic dispute with his wife.
Troopers were sent at 12:08 a.m. Monday to the residence of Elaine Lamb, 42, along Pizza Barn Road in Derry Township, Westmoreland County. Police said Elaine Lamb told a police dispatcher her soon-to-be ex-husband, Jeremy Lamb, was outside her residence walking around. Elaine Lamb had filed for a protection-from-abuse order against her husband, according to police.
A short time later, while still on the phone, Elaine Lamb told the dispatcher her husband was trying to get inside the house by crawling through a window. She later told the dispatcher her husband had kicked open the front door and was inside, and then the dispatcher heard arguing between a man and woman before telephone contact was lost.
When officers arrived at the scene they met Elaine Lamb at the end of her driveway. She told the troopers her husband was frustrated with her because she refused to discuss their breakup and the reasons for her seeking a PFA in Indiana County.
Police said Elaine Lamb told the officers her husband brandished a small black handgun and handcuffs. When he did so, she ran from the house with her husband chasing her, but he slipped and fell on the porch and she was able to get away.
Police said troopers found Jeremy Lamb partially under a wooden deck of the residence. He had in his possession a handgun, a box of .45-caliber ammunition and a pair of handcuffs, police said. He was taken into custody without a struggle.
Jeremy Lamb was charged with burglary, unlawful restraint, simple assault and possession of instruments of crime. He was placed in the Westmoreland County jail to await a preliminary hearing on Dec. 18.
