There is a prize of $10,000 available for information that leads to the individual’s arrest.

In Omaha, Des Moines, and Kansas City, according to the investigators, they have been working on leads related to this case.

At 12:26 in the morning on Wednesday, January 19, an attack was reported in the area of Saddle Creek Road and Leavenworth Street, as stated in a document filed with the Douglas County Court.

The victim reportedly disclosed to the officers of the Omaha Police Department that they had provided Chambers and another person with transportation, but that Chambers grew upset throughout the travel. The victim stated that after stopping the car, they struggled with Chambers, who eventually stole the keys from them. The victim’s thumb was wounded during the battle. According to the records, Chambers then walked away with the other passenger, taking with him the victim’s keys as well as the phone charger.

According to the affidavit filed with the court, Chambers was placed under custody following that event, and the amount of his bond was set at $25,000. Chambers was released on bail, but he did not show up for the preliminary hearing that was scheduled for March 30.
