BATTLE GROUND — On Mon., Oct. 17, at about 2:30 a.m., a Battle Ground police officer responded to a reported auto prowl in progress near the 1300 block of Northwest 15th Court, a residential area of Battle Ground, according to a news release from the city of Battle Ground.
As the officer arrived, the reporting party pointed out two suspects who were getting into a vehicle a couple of blocks down the street. As the officer approached the vehicle, the two male suspects exited the vehicle and ran. The officer initiated a foot pursuit and was able to apprehend one suspect, later identified as Greg John Bambrock, 35, of Vancouver, in the backyard of a home.
A records check of Bambrock found that he was the subject of a Department of Corrections felony warrant. He was taken into custody and later booked into the Clark County Jail.
The Battle Ground Police Department K9 unit was deployed to locate the second suspect, believed to be Jeremy Robert Moulton of Vancouver, but was unsuccessful and Moulton remains at large.
During the investigation officers recovered several items of stolen property, including bank cards, IDs, purses, wallets and tablets from the suspects’ vehicle. They also discovered that the vehicle itself had been reported stolen from the Vancouver area.
The Battle Ground Police Department is seeking information from the public that will lead them to the location of the second suspect, Jeremy Robert Moulton. Moulton is 27 years old and is from Vancouver. He is Caucasian; five-foot, 10-inches tall; about 145 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Moulton is described as having a large bandage on his face to cover an abscess.
The Battle Ground Police Department reminds residents to remain vigilant — always remove valuables, lock vehicles and report any suspicious activity.
